Baked Apples in the Slow Cooker

apple

I actually used my slow cooker twice yesterday: firstly to make chicken stock, which it did very well, and later to make these for dessert.

I hadn’t actually ever had baked apples before; I’d thought about doing them several times but had always ended up making crumble or pies from cooking apples. These were simple and delicious. Even Tim was convinced.

Ingredients

Per person:

  • 1 cooking apple
  • 1 tbsp raisins
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • Hot water

Method

  1. Core the apple.
  2. Mix together the raisins, sugar and cinnamon. Stuff the mixture into the hole made by coring the apple.
  3. Place each apple in the slow cooker. Pour hot water from the kettle into the slow cooker to cover the bottom by about a centimetre.
  4. Cook on Low for 3 hours.
  5. Serve with ice cream.
