- 4 Pink Lady apples
- 6 dates, stoned and roughly chopped
- 6 T golden syrup
- 3 T butter
- Mascarpone or custard, for serving
Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Core the apples and make a horizontal incision around each apple. Place the apples on a baking tray, stuff the cavities with the dates and drizzle with the syrup.
Top each apple with a knob of butter. Bake for 45 minutes, or until sticky and oozing.
Serve immediately with big dollops of mascarpone or custard.
Cook's note: Known as “fallen” apples for their squishy appearance, this might just be the best way to enjoy a Pink Lady apple: stuffed with dates, baked with butter and syrup and served with a dollop of marscapone. Core blimey!
