  • 3 medium baking apples dessert apples can be used
  • 3 tablespoons sultanas
  • 3 tablespoons raisins
  • 3 tablespoons currants
  • 3 tablespoons dried cranberries
  • 3 tablespoons chopped mixed nuts
  • 4 tablespoons clear runny honey
  • 4 tablespoons apple juice (orange juice can be used)
  • 1 small lemon - juice only
  • 4 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter


  • Preheat your oven to 200C / 400F / Gas mark 6.
  • In a medium saucepan add your honey, apple juice, lemon juice, light brown sugar and butter and gently bring to a simmer until everything is melted.
  • Take it off the heat and add your sultanas, raisins, currants, dried cranberries and give them all a little stir and place them to one side.
  • Wash, core and carefully slice through the skin on the circumference of each apple and place them in a suitable roasting dish or pan.
  • Add your chopped mixed nuts to your dried fruit and stir. Spoon in the fruit and nut mix to the holes in the apples.
  • Pour over the remaining liquid over the apples and around their bases.
  • Top each apple with a little bit of tin foil (aluminium foil) to protect your apples while baking.
  • Place them in your oven and bake for around 40 minutes taking them out halfway and carefully lifting the foil hats and basting them with the juices then replacing them and popping them back in the oven.
  • Once baked serve immediately. They will keep in the fridge for 3 days but taste better warm so pop them in the oven for at least 15 minutes to reheat.
