Tender baked apples make a delicious and simple desert. Serve with custard, cream or ice cream.
small Bramley apples
about 2 tbsp mincemeat
a little golden syrup
Preheat the oven to 180°C/170°C fan/gas mark 4.
Using an apple corer or potato peeler, remove the cores from the apples and discard. Cut a slit in the skin around the middle of the apple.
Spoon the mincemeat into the centre of the apples pressing it down well so that the core is filled completely. Place on a baking sheet and spoon a little more mincemeat on top.
Drizzle a little golden syrup on top and bake in the centre of the oven for 30–40 minutes or until tender. Allow to stand for 10 minutes before serving.
