Hello everyone. I hope you are all doing well! It’s time for a new Fortnightly Baking Fun Challenge! Before I announce the new challenge, have you voted for the winner of the last challenge?
Okay, The theme for this fortnight is.............
Fruit and Vegetables!!!
Any kind of fruit or vegetable recipe you like.
The prize is a stunning, and I do mean, STUNNING recipe book:
How to get Five-A-Day
the fruit and vegetable cookbook!
This book is filled with over 50 delicious step-by-step recipes.
The different parts on different recipes are:
Roots, Shoots and Stems
Greens, Beans and Peas
Mushroom and Squashes
Apple, Pear and Stone Fruits
Berries and Citrus Fruits
My example is delicious Baked Apples:
4 Larger English cooking apples
50g dark muscovado sugar (I used “Rapandora” sugar)
50g Hazelnuts crushed
2 tbsp finely grated dark chocolate
1/2 tsp ground Cinnamon
Juice of 1 orange (I used a lemon)
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C (350 degrees F)
Remove the cores from the apples. Take a knife and make a slit in the skin all around each apple, just above the middle.
Combine the sugar, hazelnuts, raisins, chocolate and cinnamon.
Place the apple on a baking tray and stuff the centers with the fruit and nut mix. Finish each apple with a squeeze of orange/lemon juice.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the apples are soft.
Served with a bit of fresh cream is delicious!
