This delicious recipe is super simple and is the perfect sweet treat - without the guilt.
Cooked apples are very good to perk up our ojas (our vitality), so it is good to include them in our diet. This dessert is ideal for those with a kapha imbalance and it should ideally be eaten as it is on its own, but vata can eat it with a little crème fraîche on the side and pitta can drizzle over a little cream.
Preheat the oven to 190ºC (375ºF) gas mark 5. Core the apple to make a neat hole 2.5cm in diameter. Slice off the base of the apple so it can stand upright.
Mix together the sugar, nuts, cinnamon, nutmeg and raisins. Pack into the cavity of the apple. Place in a snug fitting baking dish and pour around the apple juice. Top the apple with the butter. Cover with foil and bake for 8 minutes. Remove foil and continue cooking the apple until soft, basting every 6–7
Minutes or so; this takes around 40–45 minutes.
If you're in a hurry and need a quicker dish, cut the apples in half and core, then cook in their skins for 25 minutes.
