Good reason to buy an apple corer

I had forgotten all about baked apple puddings until I came across this recipe in a newspaper. My mum used to make a lot of baked-apple puddings and they were always my favourite.

This works very well. All the sugar melts and escapes out into the roasting pan, but when you put the apples onto the plate or bowl, you can spoon the melted sugar out and heap it over the top.

(for 6)

6 cooking apples
120g butter
6 tbsp raisins
4 tbsp brown sugar

1 - Heat oven to 190C. Core the apples and score with a knife around the equator of each apple.
2 - Stuff sugar, raisings and a knob of butter into each apple
3 - Bake for 25-30 mins and serve with cream or creme fraiche



  1. have you found a good corer? I have spaz of a corer that just bends in half so I end up sticking a knife into the bloody apple and leaving lots of stringy core which rather ruins a nicely, puffy and collapsed baked apple covered in cream.

  2. Hey that's terrible news. I haven't found a good corer, in fact. I tend to think Good Grips do most things pretty well, so I was going to get one of those. Is yours from Good Grips?!?!?

  3. I think i can safely say that mine is a "1st Generation" corer - ie thin metal and just a bit rubbish. I will have a look at Good Grips
