Baked apple with orange and hazelnuts

15 Nov

It’s getting to the real comfort food time of year now. This is just a baked apple, and as such probably not entirely deserving of a post, but it serves as a little reminder to ourselves how heart-cockle-warming this can be. This is the hot water bottle of desserts (or we had it for breakfast yesterday); it’s simple, cheap and makes you feel all superior for not wasting energy on central heating/eating healthy.

Baked apple with orange and hazelnuts

  • 1 large Bramley apple, chopped into large cubes
  • 2 – 3 tsp of hazelnuts
  • 3cm chunk of orange zest, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tsp raisins or sultanas

Mix all ingredients. Cook in oven at 180C for 20 minutes or until fruit has gone brown on top and jammy underneath.

We like to serve it with yoghurt and agave or some berry jam. If you are less pure of soul and artery, you could always go for cream or custard.

Estimated cost: £1.20

Musical accompaniment: The Kinks
