Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: British
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 4 large Bramley cooking apples
  • 4 ounces soft dark brown sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons sweet mincemeat
  • 2 ounces flaked almonds or chopped pecan nuts
  • 1 teaspoon powdered cinnamon
  • 2 Tablespoons raisins
  • 1 ounce unsalted butter
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Remove the center core of the apples, leaving 1/4 inch uncut at the bottom. Run the tip of a sharp knife round the circumference of the apple, just to pierce the skin. This stops the apples bursting in the oven.
  3. Combine all the ingredients except for the butter and juice, and spoon it into the cavities of the apples; place the excess in the bottom of the buttered baking dish.
  4. Place the apples on the fruit in the dish, dot the top with butter and pop in the oven for 45 to 60 minutes. Every 10 minutes, add 2 Tablespoons of apple juice to the bottom of the dish, and spoon the juices over the apples.
