Playing around in the kitchen this afternoon. Turned out remarkably well for a first timer. Used a little cooking spray in the 8 ounce ramikins otherwise this is fat free but still tastes very rich to my taste buds.
VARIATION ON BAKED APPLES
2 medium to large apples cored and thinly sliced. Peel if you want to or leave the peel on. Microwave the apples for five minutes or so on high. Add a teaspoon of vanilla, two tablespoons of brown sugar, two tablespoons of honey, a few sprinkles of cinnamon or nutmeg and a teaspoon of vanilla.
1/2 Cup coarsely chopped walnuts
1/3 Cup dried cranberries
1/3 Cup blueberries
1/3 Cup raisins
Soak the dried fruit in a little water until soft. Add the fruit and nuts to the apple mixture. Spoon into a casserole or four small ramekins. Bake in a hot water bath at 325 for 30 to 40 minutes. It's ok if the apples are still a little al dente. Serve with whatever topping suits you. Nonfat vanilla yogurt works very well.
