For a dessert with a difference, we’ve stuffed red apples with a gorgeous combination of wensleydale cheese, walnuts, prunes and Greek yogurt before baking them with sweet dessert wine.

Ingredients

  • 100g wensleydale with apricots
  • 
75g shelled walnuts, toasted 
in a dry pan and finely chopped
  • 
6 soft pitted prunes, chopped
  • 
2 tbsp greek yogurt
  • 
8 red eating apples, cored and scored horizontally around the middle (see tip)
  • Vegetable oil for brushing
  • 
40g butter
  • 
2 tbsp demerara sugar
  • 
100ml dessert wine (such as moscatel de Valencia)

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 190°C/170°fan/gas 5. Mix the wensleydale, walnuts, prunes and yogurt in a bowl. Spoon the mixture into the apples.
  2. Brush the apples with oil and fit snugly into a baking dish. Dot the butter on top. Sprinkle with the sugar, pour in the wine, cover tightly with foil and bake for 50-60 minutes until tender, basting after 30 minutes.
  3. Serve on warmed plates with some of the buttery cooking juices.

delicious. tips

  1. Stuff the apples the day before, cover and chill until ready to bake.

  2. These cheese-stuffed apples are a halfway house between dessert and a cheese course. We used red dessert apples but if you prefer, use Bramleys, adding 2 tbsp more sugar in step 2. Bramleys break down more quickly so check after 40 minutes.
