Ingredients

  • 90g mixed raisins and sultanas (or other dried fruit)
  • 75ml calvados
  • 6 eating apples (we like ambrosia or cox)
  • 60g unsalted butter, softened, plus an extra knob
  • 30g soft light brown sugar
  • 50g blanched almonds, chopped
  • Good grating of nutmeg
  • Pinch of ground allspice
  • 2 tbsp golden caster sugar

Method

  1. Put the dried fruit and calvados in a small pan over a low heat. Warm for a minute, then cool.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180°C/fan160°C/gas 4. Core the apples, put in a pan of simmering water and cook for 5-10 seconds. Remove, cool and put in a roasting tin big enough to hold the apples with gaps in between.
  3. Mix the 60g butter, soft light brown sugar, almonds and spices in a bowl. Drain the dried fruit, reserving the calvados left in the pan, and add the fruit to the butter and sugar mix. Beat well to combine.
  4. Stuff the apples with the mixture, then bake, stuffed ends up, for 30-40 minutes until the apples are just soft.
  5. Meanwhile, put the caster sugar, knob of butter and 2 tbsp cold water in a heavy-based pan with the reserved calvados over a medium- high heat. Bubble for 3-4 minutes until the mix forms a glossy caramel.
  6. Remove the apples from the oven and pour over the caramel. Serve with custard and cream.
