5
5-7 minutes microwave / 30 minutes oven
Equipment: 
  • Sharp knife
  • Chopping board
  • Tablespoon
  • Bowl
  • Deep oven proof dish or microwaveable bowl
Ingredients: 
  • 4 apples i.e. Granny Smiths
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons raisins
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar or sweetener

(NB - It’s best not to give your child honey until they’re one year old)

Simple steps: 
  1. If using the oven, preheat to 180C/fan 160C/gas mark 5.
  2. Slice the top off the apples and save for later. Core the apples, leaving the bottom intact (about ½ inch).
  3. In another bowl, combine lemon juice, honey, raisins, and cinnamon. Divide and spoon the mixture into each of the apples.
  4. Place the apples in a deep casserole dish or microwavable bowl and replace apple tops.
  5. Sprinkle with a little brown sugar or sweetener, cover with a plate (this allows the apples to steam, creating the “baked” effect).  
  6. Put in the microwave for 5 minutes, allowing 2 extra minutes if the apples are still hard Alternatively bake uncovered in the pre-heated oven for 30 minutes, or until apples are tender.

 

Try different types of dried fruit e.g. sultanas, cranberries and apricots
