Baked Apples

Soaking dates in malt helps them absorb the delicious malty flavours to complement the taste of dates. The result is a malted toffee/caramel flavour which balances beautifully with the apple tartness.

4 baking apples
120g dried chopped dates
120g dried chopped apricots
1 tablespoon malt extract
60ml warm water

For the glaze:
60g brown sugar
100ml water
1 tablespoon malt extract


Soak the dried fruit in the malt extract and water mixture for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, wash the apples and remove their cores. Fill the middle with the soaked fruit mixture and gently score around the circumference of the apples to stop them bursting during cooking. Pre-Heat oven to 150°C. In a large casserole dish mix in the brown sugar, water and malt extract and sit the apples on top. Cover the dish with a lid or tin foil and bake in the oven for 45-60 minutes until the apples are soft.

Tip: Serve immediately with a spoonful of ice cream or fresh cream.
