The perfect end to a dinner with friends, just add a dollop of Greek yoghurt or vanilla icecream.


6 Ballarat Apples

100g softened butter

½ cup brown sugar

½ cup sultanas or chopped dates

3 tsp ground cinnamon

½ c water


Core the apples and score the skin to prevent them from bursting open during cooking, and place in a baking dish. Mix together 50g of the butter, sugar, sultanas/dates and cinnamon.  Fill the centre of the apples. Dot over remaining butter and pour over the water.

Bake at 180c for 30-40 minutes or until the apples are tender (cooking time will vary on size and variety of apple).
