Step 1

Preheat oven to 170 degree celsius.

Step 2

Using an apple corer or small sharp knife remove only the core from the apples (keeping the apple whole). Cut out a little extra apple until you form a 2cm wide hole.

Step 3

Using a sharp knife, score the apples all the way around the middle in a circular motion.

Step 4

Place the apples in an ovenproof dish, just large enough to hold them.

Step 5

In a small bowl, combine the walnuts, currants, sugar (or substitute), cinnamon and orange zest; add 1 tablespoon of the orange juice and stir to combine.

Step 6

Evenly divide the filling between the apple holes, then spoon the remaining juice over the apples.

Step 7

Cover the dish with baking paper, then cover with foil.

Step 8

Cook for 30 - 40 minutes, or until the apples a very tender.

Step 9

Remove and discard foil and baking paper.

Step 10

Serve warm with the diet vanilla yoghurt.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



My apples were teeny. I was able to use four. I had never made baked apples. After 30 minutes I thought well I think they're done but just in case I put them in for 10 more minutes. So when I went back after 10 minutes they had kind of fallen apart. I took the prettiest one and took a picture of it. I have some caramel syrup that I made from another recipe. I think I'm going to put it on top of the yogurt when I eat my next one. These were good and you could use them as low carb / low calorie or you could doctor it up and put more junk on it.

This made for a great dessert for us, I could locate any currants at the store, so I subbed raisins for it. Very flavorful. I would not change a thing with this. A well enjoyed dessert.
