Baked apples make a simple but pleasurable dessert. William Drabble uses blackberries, raisins and ground almonds for his filling but feel free to experiment with different ingredients. Kids will love making this dessert, show them the ropes by filling the first apple and then let them do the rest.

Method
1.
Core the apples completely through. Use a knife to score around the equator of the apple, piercing the skin
2.
Preheat the oven to 150°C/gas mark 2
3.
Using your hands, mix together the butter, brown sugar, raisins and ground almonds in a bowl
Room for a little one
Little ones will love getting stuck into mixing the filling. Make sure they use a big bowl or else some pesky raisins may escape!
4.
Fill each apple to halfway with the almond mixture, then add a couple of blackberries to the centre as well
5.
Bake the stuffed apples in the oven until soft, approximately 20-30 minutes. Serve warm with remaining blackberries
