Ingredients

8 apples, Cortland or Lobo   1.4 kg
2 1/2 tbsp butter, unsalted   35 g
2 tbsp brown sugar   24 g
1 tbsp raisins   9 g
2 tbsp pine nuts   14 g
1 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon   4 g
  salt, about one pinch    

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190ºC/375ºF.
  2. Wash the apples. With a corer, carve out the core and seeds from the top, paying attention not to pierce the apple completely through to the bottom. Make a circular incision just through the skin halfway up the side to avoid bursting during cooking. Place the apples in a shallow baking dish.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the butter, brown sugar, raisins, nuts, cinnamon, and 1 pinch of salt. Portion out the mixture into the apples. Add a small amount of water (about ½ tbsp per apple) to the bottom of the dish to start the cooking and prevent burning or sticking. Place the dish with the apples in the centre of the oven.
  4. Bake for about 30 min, depending on the size and type of the apples, until they are soft.
  5. Serve warm or at room temperature.
