Baked apples


  • 6 eating apples (grown-up helpers: please score around the circumference of each with a small, sharp knife)
  • handful of sultanas
  • 2 tbsp light muscovado sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • matchbox-size piece of butter
  • 2 tsp demerara sugar


  • STEP 1

    Ask a grown-up to turn the oven on to 200C/180C fan/ gas 6. Sit each apple on the worktop and push the apple corer into the centre of each one (or ask a grown-up to do this for you).

  • STEP 2

    Mix the sultanas, muscovado sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl.

  • STEP 3

    Stand up the apples, side by side, in a baking dish. Using your fingers, push a little bit of the sultana mixture into each apple, using up all the mixture between them.

  • STEP 4

    Add a blob of butter to the top of each and sprinkle over the demerara sugar. Ask a grown-up to put the dish in the oven for 20 mins or until the apples are cooked through.
