I think that baked apples are the absolute epitome of student food, they’re lovely and caramel-flavoured and so easy to make! It’s amazing how all you really need is an apple and it can create an amazing dessert, I’m kicking myself for not thinking of doing it sooner as I eat apples every single day and never once thought of making one into a yummy dessert! I’d definitely recommend making this on a chilly Winter’s afternoon, as the flavours of a lovely, soft, sweet apple with all the lovely fruit and nuts inside are probably the healthiest comfort food around, in fact, I’ll be making this every day until Christmas arrives :)

One large cooking apple
A few small knobs of vegan margarine
One small handful each of raisins and oats
A few chopped almonds
A sprinkling of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger
About a tablespoon of agave syrup
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
- Core the apple and score it around the middle with a knife so it doesn’t burst in the oven (clearly I didn’t do this deep enough as mine came out of its skin a little!)
- Stuff the middle of the apple with a mixture of raisins, oats, spices and agave, then squeeze some more agave over the apple, and put a little margarine over the top.
- Bake for around 35 minutes, then dive in!
