There are many ways to prepare this dessert, you can adapt it for your favourite flavours. I chose a simple and quick version of baked apples with cinnamon and honey, 'hidden' under a puff pastry lid.
8 people made this
4 large, juicy apples, peeled and cored
4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
4 teaspoons honey
1 sheet puff pastry
1 egg yolk, beaten
1 tablespoon water
Method Prep:10min › Cook:25min › Ready in:35min
Preheat oven to 210 C / Gas 7. Lightly butter a small baking dish.
Place peeled, cored apples in dish. In the centre of each apple, sprinkle with 1 teaspoon cinnamon and drizzle with honey.
Roll out puff pastry, prick with a fork in several places and cut into 4 square pieces. Cover each apple with a piece of pastry. Finally, in a small bowl beat egg yolk with water and brush over pastry.
Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 30 minutes, until apples are tender and pastry is golden brown. Serve with vanilla ice cream, an irresistible combination!
You could add crushed nuts to the centre of the apples, or use golden syrup or brown sugar instead of honey.
