Serves: 4
4 large baking apples, cored
4 tbsp golden raisins (sultanas)
2 dried pears or 4 dried apricots, chopped
4 tbsp chopped walnuts or pecans
juice and zest of 1 lemon
2 cinnamon sticks
4 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp brown sugar
55g / 2 oz butter
4 tbsp water
plain (natural) yogurt, for serving (optional)

Preheat the oven to 375ºF / 190ºC / Gas Mark 5. Score the skin of the apples around the middle and place the apples in a non stick baking pan.

Mix the golden raisins (sultanas), dried pears, and nuts with the lemon juice and zest and use to stuff the apples. Break the cinnamon sticks in half and place in the pan, then drizzle the maple syrup over. Sprinkle with the sugar and dot with the butter. Add the water to the pan.

Bake for 45 minutes. Let the apples cool slightly, then serve drizzled with the syrup from the pan and a spoonful of yogurt, if using.
