Apples Baked With Fruit And Nuts. Hello friends, so how are you today? All good, I hope. Also today I have a tasty apple recipe to share with you. Are you looking for a baked apple recipe? Do you fancy making some apples baked with fruit and nuts?

Baked apples can go in the oven along with a roast or whatever else is in there, so long as the temperature is around the middling mark.

They’re equally good whether you eat them hot as a pudding with vanilla ice cream, or cold from the fridge for a fruity breakfast the next day.

And of course, there’s nothing to stop you having them with vanilla ice cream for breakfast if you’re in the mood for living dangerously. Yummy!

How To Make Apples Baked With Fruit And Nuts:

Baked Apple Recipe:

Serves 6

Ingredients:

  • 6 heaped tbsp chopped dried fruit
  • 150ml Port or apple juice
  • 6 large Bramley apples (approx. 220g each)
  • 2 tbsp chopped nuts and seeds
  • 2 tbsp honey or Golden Syrup

How To Make Apples Baked With Fruit And Nuts:

Method:

  1. Soak the fruit – this can be a haphazard mix of whatever you have around: dates, prunes, apricots, raisins, sultanas, cranberries – in the port or apple juice for several hours, preferably overnight.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180oC/160°C fan/gas mark 4.
  3. Line a deep baking tin with enough foil to come up and over the apples once they are in. Wash and core the apples, score a line horizontally around their middles to stop them exploding while they’re cooking, and place them in the baking tin.
  4.  Drain the soaked fruit, reserving the port or apple juice.
  5. Add nuts and seeds – try slivered hazelnuts or almonds with pumpkin and sunflower seeds – to the soaked fruit and pack the mixture in to the hollow centre of the apples. Don’t worry if it overflows. Drizzle each apple with honey or golden syrup and spoon the reserved port or apple juice across the top.
  6. Loosely fold the foil over the apples and bake for 40 minutes.
  7. Open the foil and bake uncovered for a further 10 minutes, until the apples are cooked but not collapsing. Allow the dish to sit for 10 minutes before serving with a generous topping of vanilla ice cream.

Thirdly, Pickled Apples: Great For Health Benefits. The polyhphenols present in apples help to reduce the fluctuations of blood sugar, which is particularly important for people suffering from diabetes. When you combine this with the health advantages of acetic acid, which is found in vinegar, you’ve got yourself a winner. Apples are also high in iron and can be used to cure anaemia; however, the season is never long enough for me. Particularly considering the quantity of apples we produce at the restaurant. When there aren’t any apples in season, pickled apples are frequently on the menu for the rest of the year. Pickled Apples: Great For Health Benefits

    I’ve never used fruit in baked apples; I think I would like it. I usually just use brown sugar, a dab of butter and some cinnamon. BUT, I love using cinnamon red hots candy as it turns the apple flesh pink! We have a cat who thinks he deserves a lick of whipped cream off my SO’s dessert, too!
