This has been a family favourite winter dessert for as long as I can remember. It may feel old fashioned but it is easy, has a small list of ingredients and healthy. As well as being tasty what else do you need? Oh, I know – it’s gluten free and vegan too!!
The recipe can be found on BBC Good Food.
We used to call this dessert exploding apples because of the number of times I cooked it in the oven for a little too long in a slightly too hot oven. As they do need to be cooked in a low temperature oven for quite a while I now do this in advance of cooking the rest of my meal (without the fruit) and then just re-heating for 15 mins before eating.
I replace the blackberries in the recipe with a few spoons of fruit from a mixed bag of frozen fruit. Also, I don’t add the cinnamon, just personal taste.
