Step by step
1. Preheat oven to 200˚C/Gas 6.
2. Core the apple. Make a shallow cut (no deeper than 1cm) around the middle (circumference) of the apple – this lets it expand without exploding.
3. Mix the remaining ingredients. In a roasting dish, pack the mix into the cores of the apples – be generous!
4. Bake for about 40 mins, till the apples are tender and plump. Check halfway through cooking as smaller apples will cook a little faster. Serve with yogurt and cream.
