Bom dia, boas!
I moved into my new appartment this week and I just had to celebrate the fact that I have an awesome oven now with making yummy baked apples.
Also the nights are getting colder so it’s definitely time to get cosy on the couch!
The great thing about baked apples is that they don’t require much preparation time, it really gets as complicated as you want. When they are in the oven, you can sit back, relax and sip on your tea.
Keep an eye on the oven though cause otherwise baked apple will turn into applesauce in our oven, which kind of happened to me last night. This is how they should have looked like:
Walnut stuffed baked apples with vanilla sauce
4 apples (should be cooking apples like russet, maca reineta)
100g of walnuts
3-4 tabsp agave
2 tsp cinnamon poder
a culpe of raisins (optional)
coconut oil (optional)
for the sauce
500ml of milk (I think soy works the best here but you can use rice o almond milk)
40g sugar (vanilla sugar is good to use here)
1 vanilla pod
How to do it:
- preheat the oven on 180 degrees. Cut the centre out of the apple, I cut a square out of the centre and it looks something like this:
- In a blender or with a knife chope the walnuts, put the in a bowl and add the agave a cinnamon and stir until all you get a sticky paste and the cinnamon is stirred in completely.
- Stuff the apples with the filling and place them in the oven form. I then put a little teaspoon of coconutoil (hard) on each apple. It will melt in the oven and make the apple nice and brown whilst baking. Put them in the oven for 25 minutes.
- While the apple are in the oven, you can prepare the vanilla sauce. Just add all ingredients into a sauce pan, stir well and bring to boil. Let it simmer for about 5 minutes and strain it through a strainer to get rid of lumps. When the sauce cools down, it ususally gets a bit thicker.
- Get the apples out of the oven, pour some sauce on them and serve on a plante.
