Baked Bramleys with ginger

Pudding & Cake Serves 4 40 min
Baked apples can be eaten warm or cold and make a lovely simple weeknight dessert. Bramleys are mouth-curdlingly sour when raw but become golden and fluffy in the oven. They're even more sumptuous eaten with a scoop of icecream or a drizzle of cream or custard.

Ingredients

  • 4 medium Bramley apples
  • 30g lemongrass
  • 2cm piece fresh ginger
  • 2 tbsp orange peel
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar

Method

Prep time: 10 min
Cooking time: 30 min
  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 200°C/Gas Mark 6. Peel the Bramleys, remove the core and cut into thick apple rings. Finely chop the lemongrass, discarding any tough outer leaves. Shred the orange peel.
  • Step 2

    Cut four pieces of foil about 25cm square. Arrange the apple rings on the foil and sprinkle over the ginger, lemongrass, orange peel and sugar.
  • Step 3

    Seal the foil and place the parcels on a baking tray. Bake for about 30 minutes.
  • Step 4

    Gently lift the parcels onto plates and serve..
