I like simple and hassle free preparation in making baked desserts, especially to be served hot or warm right after meals.
These baked warm apples .... tasted soft but not mushy with warm citrus honey sweet orange juice is soothing to the throat. And really easy and fuss free with just 4 simple steps in the preparation.
The original recipe calls for lemon, since I don't have any, I simply replaced it with an orange.
This simple yet delicious dessert recipe adapted from Desserts All Around The Year cookbook by Martha Day
Baked Apples in Honey and Orange
4 Bramley or other cooking apples
1 tablespoon clear honey
Grated rind and juice of 1 orange (original used lemon)
1 tablespoon low-fat spread
Skimmed milk custard, to serve (optional)
1) Preheat the oven to 180°C. Remove the cores from the apples, taking care not to go right through the bottoms of the apples.
2) With a cannelle knife or a narrow bladed, sharp knife, cut lines through the apple skin at intervals. Stand the apples in an oven-proof dish.
(You may refer to picture but I don’t have a cannelle knife, simply used a peeler to peel off few apple skin)
3)Mix together the honey, orange rind, juice and low-fat spread.
4) Spoon the mixture into the apples and cover the dish with foil or a lid. Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the apples are tender. Serve with skimmed milk custard, if you like.
