The Recipe: BAKED APPLES

As I promised the ‘Baked Apples’ recipe is going live.

The perfect dessert – easy to make, to serve, to spice up, to eat and the most important thing – you stay healthy since there are no additional sugar, no extra fat, all natural and low in calories. Am I dreaming? Low-calory sweet treat.

You will need:

  • apples (as many as you like)
  • raisins
  • nuts
  • honey
  • dry fruit of your choice

There are tons of variations as far as filling is concerned. You may put only nuts or only raisins, you can even leave then ‘naked’ (as on the picture)

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 170 degrees. Cut out the cores with a knife or a special cutter – I’ve used knife,  there is not point in being fancy with this recipe – it is that easy as it can be. Place your apples into any the baking tin they’ll fit in. Then be creative – chop some nuts (hazelnuts and almonds taste incredible together) and some dry fruits (raisins and some prunes) and cover the holes in the apples with that mixture. On the top pour about a tablespoon of honey and for spices I love to sprinkle a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg on top and into the oven for 20-30 minutes or until they ‘get wrinkles’.

TIP: If it an adult treat you may add a bit of rum there to spice it up a bit.

You may serve them plain if you filled them already or if you have ‘naked’ ones or you have guests that are fond of ice-cream you can place a little scoop of vanilla ice-cream by the apple side. Those flavors compliment each other so nicely – just so yummy!

Hope you try this recipe and happy friday everyone!
