Ingredients

  • 4 eating apples (such as Royal Gala)
  • 40g Essential Unsalted Butter, softened
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 30g sultanas
  • 30g pecans, chopped
  • 1 tbsp light brown muscovado sugar
  • 1 tbsp Essential Porridge Oats
  • Vanilla ice cream, to serve

For the salted caramel sauce

  • 30g Essential Unsalted Butter
  • 100g light brown muscovado sugar
  • 170ml Essential Double Cream
  • 2 tbsp Baileys Irish Cream

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4. Use a small, sharp knife to make a circular incision into the top of each apple where the core is (taking care not to cut right through to the base), then ease out the core. Put the cored apples in a small-medium baking dish.

  2. In a bowl, mash the butter and cinnamon together, then stir in the sultanas, pecans, sugar and oats. Spoon this into the apples, piling any extra up on top. Pour 200ml warm water into the base of the baking dish, then bake for about 35-45 minutes until the apples are soft to the touch. Set aside to cool for 5 minutes.

  3. For the sauce, gently heat the butter, sugar, cream and a pinch of salt in a small saucepan until all the sugar has dissolved. Turn up the heat and simmer for 1 minute, then take off the heat and stir in the Baileys Salted Caramel. Remove the apples from the cooking liquid and serve with the salted caramel sauce and ice cream.
