These baked apples taste just like hot crossed buns! Serve them as a side with the meat of your choice (any kind of pork works really well) or even as an Easter dessert with vanilla custard.
Spiced Baked Apples with Pork Chops
You will need
4 Small Apples
3 Tbls Walnuts or Pecan nuts, chopped
2 Tbls Cranberry, sultana and raisin mix, chopped
¼ Cup Brown sugar
1 Tbls Butter, melted
¼ tsp Cinnamon, ground
¼ tsp Nutmeg, ground
1/8 tsp Colves, ground
4 Pork Chops
How to make it
Pre heat the oven to 180°C.
Combine all the ingredients (except the apples).
Core the apples and stuff them with the raisin, nut & spice mix.
Place the apples on a greased baking tray.
Bake for 25 – 30 minutes until the apples are tender.
Remove from the oven, cover with foil and rest for 15 minutes.
Season the pork chops and cook on a hot griddle pan until done.
Serve the warm baked apples with the pork chops.
- If you prefer a saucier baked apple (as opposed to a toasted caramelised one) dissolve the sugar in ¼ up water (or half water half brandy) before mixing with the rest of the ingredients.
