Ingredients

  • 2 apple
  • ½ lemon (juiced, about 1.5 tbsp)
  • ¼ cup butter (or vegan margarine)
  • cup ground nuts (e.g almonds and/or hazelnuts)
  • cup raisins
  • 1-2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon

Instructions

  • Wash the apples and cut out the core. Either cut a small square shape into the top of the apple, cutting down to half way. Turn the apple over and repeat with a slightly larger square.
  • Then simply push out the loose section with your thumb, from the small end to the large end. Alternatively, just use an apple corer.
  • You can also scoop out the apple if that’s your thing.
  • Put the apples into an oven dish and pour the lemon juice into the middle of the apple - it prevents the apple from going brown and adds a nice fresh lemon taste to the flavour.
  • Heat up the butter in a sauce pan until fully melted.
  • Meanwhile mix the nuts, raisins, sugar and cinnamon in a bowl and add half the melted butter. Stir well.
  • Stuff the apples with the butter-nut-raisin-mixture and then pour the rest of the butter over the top. Put the dish on the lowest level of a preheated oven (175°C/ 350°F) and bake for 30-35min till the top is golden brown.
  • Best served warm, either on it’s own, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or with caramel or vanilla sauce :)
  • Guten appetit!

Notes

MORE STUFFING IDEAS:
  • Dried dates or other dried fruit in place of raisins
