Experience the Ultimate Comfort Food and Get Cozy with Warm and Delicious Baked Apples with Mixed Berries
- Wash well, core and make sure there aren’t any pips in the middle after coring.
- Take a sharp knife and score all the way around each one – they will open but not burst.
- Place the apples neatly in a Corning or Pyrex dish for baking making sure there is space in between.
- Place in the middle of each apple about a teaspoon of apricot jam and put a few teaspoons of jam around the bottom of the dish.
- On top of the jam, I put a few (5-6 or less) seedless raisins and sprinkle a few again on the bottom around the dish.
- Dust the apples with a good sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar.
- Pour either Coke or Diet Coke over them and about 1cm.
- Bake at 180 C/ 350F for about 1½ hours or until golden brown.
- It’s nicer to try to get them done as you are ready to serve or they will “shrivel”, but it’s not an issue as it doesn’t alter the taste. You can test if soft enough by just pricking and seeing how easily the knife goes through.
Sauce: – added extra
- A frozen packet of Mixed Berries
- Bring to boil stirring ever so often so it doesn’t burn
- If they are too sour for you, add sugar
- The Berries can be thickened by mixing in a tablespoon of custard powder.
- This will also take the tartness away and nice and thicker.
- The Mixed Berries are divine served over ice cream also.
- If you can mix milk and meat, or have a milk/fish dinner, custard or ice cream/cream is divine served with the baked Apples.
