Bonfire night baked apples


“This is a really simple and healthy dessert to enjoy around the bonfire.”


4 cooking apples, cored but left whole

2 stem ginger balls, finely chopped

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

4 prunes; chopped

50g light Muscovado sugar

1 tbsp butter

4 big scoops of vanilla ice cream


Heat oven to 180C/gas 6.

Using a sharp knife, score a line around the middle of each apple

Place in a baking dish with a small amount of water in the bottom

In a bowl, mix the ginger, cinnamon, prunes and sugar

Fill the apples with this mixture

Top each apple with a small knob of butter and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until cooked through

Remove from the oven and baste the apples with the liquid left in the dish

Serve hot or warm with the ice cream
