Recipe For Baked Apples With Blackberries

Recipe Baked Apples With Blackberries

My neighbours introduced me to this baked apple and blackberry recipe as a local favourite when I first moved in, and I was struck by how quick and delicious it was.

Baked apples are lovely served alone, but particularly nice with a little yoghurt and a sprinkle of cinnamon on top if you have those at home. 

You’ll need:

  • 4 large cooking apples, Bramleys are great if you can get them.
  • 50g of fruit to fill the apples with. Either raisins, dates, raspberries or blackberries.

How To Make The Recipe For Baked Apples With Blackberries

  1. After washing the apples, remove the cores so that each apple has a neat cavity all the way through. 
  2. Next, score the skin around the middle of the apple with a knife. Put the apples in a shallow dish before filling firmly with your chosen fruit. Dried fruits tend to work well together, dates, apricots and raisins, as do fresher berries such as blackberries and raspberries. (Blackberries and apples are often in season at the same time here in England which is lovely)
  3. Bake for 40 mins to an hour, at 180 degrees or until the apples are tender. 
  4. Serve in a desert dish with spoon and a little yoghurt on the side. 

p.s Bake an extra apple for an afternoon snack later in the week.
