  • 100g marzipan
  • 100g fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 2 tbsp flaked almonds
  • 2 tbsp clear honey
  • 4 cooking apples (Bramley's are best)
  • 6 tbsp water
  • custard or clotted cream to serve


  1. Chop marzipan into small chunks and mix with the cranberries, flaked almonds and honey.

  2. Core apples and mark a line around the circumference of each using a sharp knife. Set the apples in a shallow ovenproof dish that fits them snugly and stuff the cavities with the cranberry mix.

  3. Pour the water into the dish. Bake at fan 170C/conventional 190C/gas 5 for 30-40 minutes until the apples are tender. Cool for 10 minutes before serving with custard or clotted cream.
