Baked Apples

Serves 4 Prep Time 10 minutes   Cook Time 30 minutes   Rated:

My mum used to make baked apples the old fashioned way and we would nearly take the roof of our mouths off as we got into them before they had even had a chance to cool at all. She would pair these with some good old fashioned egg custard and that is my recommendation with this recipe too. Though admittedly, Killer Vanilla ice cream is also pretty magic as it melts all over the caramelised apple. YUM.

This is super simple to do, you can leave the brandy out and just use water in the tray if you like. Wintery dessert, made in literally minutes! Zero fuss.

Preheat Air Fryer to 180°C.


Core apple (Use an apple coring machine if you have one). We cut the apple in a slinky with the machine.


Place the pecans, butter and sugar into the Thermomix bowl and combine 10 sec/speed 4.


Press the mixture into the hollowed out apple, keeping it in the apple shape if you used the corer, peeler, slicer option.


Place apples into a small tray that fits in your Air Fryer. Pour brandy and a little water into the tray until the base is covered. (you may need to do this in batches depending on the size of your Air Fryer).


Cook for 25-30 minutes.
