Boozy Baked Apples (100% Raisin Free) | Blogmas Day 14

Thursday, December 14, 2017

Is there any food more wintery, more festive than a baked apple? I don't think so. I find they're delicious, don't require any fancy ingredients and can be whipped up in literally no time. Aaaaand, they're pretty to look at too :-) However, most classic recipes use raisins in the filling which I just cannot deal with, so I decided to do things a little different here.

You'll need:

🍎 big cooking apples
🍷 marzipan
🍎 chopped hazelnuts
🍷 sliced almonds
🍎 mulled wine or red wine

Cut out the apples' cores, making enough room for your filling without getting rid of too much delicious apple. Use a generous amount of marzipan and knead in the nuts, then use it to fill your apples. You can always put in more after if you used too little at first - trial and error guys. Now it's time to pop your apples into a small casserole dish and pour your mulled wine in the apples until they spill over and all of the apples are sitting in a pool of wine. When your apples are all filled, create a sort of "lid" of marzipan, cover them with it and decorate the lids with more sliced almonds. Put the apples in the oven at 180°C for about 17 - 20 minutes. They are done when the apples are all soft and the pool of wine starts bubbling.

And there you go! Your boozy baked apples are ready to be tucked into. I hope you enjoyed my take on the classic recipes and recreate this at home. Leave me a comment if you do :-)

Lots of Love,
