Serve this heartwarming dessert on the ?rst cold winter’s day.

Serves: 8

Preparation time: 30 minutes

Oven temperature: 180°C

Cooking time: 1 hour

8 apples

100g soft butter

75g (95ml) brown sugar

• grated rind and juice of 1 lemon

160ml sultanas

25ml brandy

45-60ml slivered almonds, roasted

1. Preheat the oven. Core the apples and use a sharp knife to make an incision in the peel of each apple about a third of the way from the top: this will prevent the apples from bursting open while baking.

2. Grease an oven dish with about 15ml of the butter.

3. Mix the rest of the butter with the remaining ingredients, spoon into the apples and bake for about an hour. Drizzle syrup into the bowl and serve with cream or custard.
