I actually used my slow cooker twice yesterday: firstly to make chicken stock, which it did very well, and later to make these for dessert.
I hadn’t actually ever had baked apples before; I’d thought about doing them several times but had always ended up making crumble or pies from cooking apples. These were simple and delicious. Even Tim was convinced.
- 1 cooking apple
- 1 tbsp raisins
- 1 tsp brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- Hot water
- Core the apple.
- Mix together the raisins, sugar and cinnamon. Stuff the mixture into the hole made by coring the apple.
- Place each apple in the slow cooker. Pour hot water from the kettle into the slow cooker to cover the bottom by about a centimetre.
- Cook on Low for 3 hours.
- Serve with ice cream.
