This is such an easy pud, not least because you don’t have to make the custard from scratch. The deep spices and amaretti biscuits give it some really big flavours.
75g sachet low-fat instant custard powder
400ml skimmed milk
4 large Bramley apples
40g amaretti biscuits, crushed
1 orange, zested
1 tsp ground allspice
½ tsp ground ginger
½ tsp ground cardamom
1 tbsp soft light brown sugar
Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 3. Tip the custard powder into a large heatproof jug. Heat the milk in a small pan to just below the boil, then pour onto the custard powder, whisking until smooth. Set aside.
Core the apples using an apple corer, making the hole a little bigger so that you have enough room for the filling.
In a small bowl, mix together the crushed amaretti biscuits, orange zest, raisins and spices.
Pour the custard into a small roasting dish. Place the apples in the dish and spoon the filling into the cavities. Bake in the oven for 20 mins, then sprinkle with brown sugar and bake for a further 15 mins.
Serve each stuffed baked apple with a portion of the hot custard.
