Baking Apples On The Braai

There isn't always time for intricate puddings when you are preparing for a braai. The apple tree in the back garden was groaning under the weight of the fruit and I have had numerous requests for Apple Pie. Yet, I simply could not get around to it. As a compromise, I baked some apples on the braai and served it with custard. This quick and easy way of preparing apples holds all the nostalgia of apple pie, without the effort. I share this delicious and healthy alternative to puddings with you in today's blog.

I picked a couple of ripe apples on the tree and washed and dried them.

I cut out small marks on the skin as well as coring half way into the apple.

I then dropped a dollop of butter, a sprinkling of sugar, some cinnamon and a little nutmeg into the hole I have made in the apple.

My 'filled' apples.

Cover the apples in foil, with the shiny side towards the apples.

Place the apples on the braai while you eat the meal. They should be done by the time the meal is finished, just in time for dessert.

You know the apples are ready when they give way when you grab them with the braai tongs.

Serve hot with cold custard.
