How To Make Pink and Delicious South African Baked Apples.

 How To Make:

 1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan oven 160°C, Gas Mark 4. 

 2. Using a sharp knife, score abound the middles of each apple – like an equator running around the earth! Remove the cores with an apple corer or a sharp knife. Grease a baking dish with a knob of the butter, then stand the apples in the dish. 

 3. Mix the remaining butter with the ground almonds, sugar, sultanas and orange zest. Spoon into the cored apples, and pour the orange juice on top. 

 4. Bake the apples for 20-25 minutes, until the flesh is soft – check with the tip of a sharp knife to see if they are tender. Cool for a few minutes (or else they are too hot to handle!) and serve with vanilla ice cream or single cream. 

 Cook’s Tip: 

If you can’t fit all the filling into the apples, just add it to the baking dish 5 minutes before the end of cooking time.

    Lol, once I get the UK decoder on (my best friend is KIWI) I think this sounds absolutely nummy. Here Sultanas I think are raisins, golden ones perhaps. But we use PinkLady apples all the time, especially this time of year. Thanks for the nummy recipe, Sandi
