Spiced roasted apples & blackberries

Looking for something very low fat but that would make a scrummy supper party pud?  Well I was and I discovered this winning recipe for Spiced Roasted Apples & Blackberries. 129 calories per portion, plus a (satisfyingly large) dollop of full fat creme fraiche, marscapone or my new discovery, Halo Top ice cream (which is a wonder in itself being only 280 calories for an ENTIRE TUB of Vanilla Bean flavour and yet is made with natural ingredients. Half price at Tesco at the time of writing this – £2.50)

Spiced roasted apples & blackberries

applesIngredients serves 4

4 medium Bramley apples, each weighing about 200g/8oz
4 tbsp clear honey
½ tsp ground cinnamon
finely grated zest and juice of 1 large orange 
250g blackberries

How to prepare
Preheat oven to 180C/gas 4/fan 160C. Core the apples so you have a hole the size of a pound coin in each one. Make a cut just into the skin around the middle of each apple.

Stand the apples in a shallow baking dish large enough to take all four. Mix together the honey, cinnamon and orange zest, put an equal amount into the cavity of each apple, then pour the orange juice into the dish.

Roast the apples for about 40 minutes, spooning the juices over them occasionally. Then, when the apples are almost ready, spoon the blackberries around and over the top of each apple. Return to the oven for 10 minutes or until the juices start to run. Spoon the blackberries and juices over the apples to serve.
