Baked apples for Christmas

This post reminded me that we used to have baked apples often when the children were young, we used to put raisins in and use butter, brown sugar and golden syrup then (I can feel the enamel on my teeth disintegrating as I picture it!). Since we began eating more healthily, we haven’t made them for a very long time. When I read this recipe out to my husband just now, he responded very enthusiastically and suggested we make them this weekend! I thought many of you might have the same reaction and so here is the recipe. Do check out Gabi’s website, she has lots of great recipes and stunning photography.

Cooking Without Limits

baked apples with walnuts and honey

Apples, cinnamon, honey and walnuts. This is the smell of Christmas in the kitchen. Pure heaven. This is my favorite Christmas dessert or lunch or breakfast or dinner. The beautiful part is that you can make this recipe with your kids. It’s easy, simple and absolutely delicious. Your little ones will love to mix everything together and taste it along the way. I know I did that all the time.

I always use different types of apples: sour, sweet and very sweet. You will cover everybody’s taste in the family. For the vegan ones you can replace the honey with maple syrup.

Use apples which are very ripe if you want the baked apples very sweet. My dad used to do this recipe with small apples or the one that are over ripe. You can use whole apples or pieces of apples. Just put the mix on the pieces instead…

    1. Anything that is an improvement on what you currently do will bring benefits and many of my changes were forced upon me for health reasons a long time ago, I don’t want to hold myself up as a pinnacle of virtue. We are all at different points on our journey – I also have quite a few years on you so there’s still time 😉
