Baked Apples in Pastry Recipe


  • 4 apples
  • 1/2 cup (100 gm – 3½ oz) sultana raisins
  • 1/4 cup (50 gm – 1¾ oz) brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup (56 gm – 2 oz) butter (soft)
  • 1/2 tsp (3 ml) cinnamon powder
  • Approx 8 oz (225 gm) shortcrust pastry (half of our recipe)


Preheat oven to 425 °F or 220 °C.

In a small bowl mix the raisins, brown sugar, cinnamon and butter together with a spoon.

Roll out the pastry into four 8″ (20 cm) rounds.

Peel and core the apples and place each in the centre of a pastry round.

Carefully spoon and pack the filling into each apple.

Bring the pastry up around the apple leaving a small opening at the top – trim any excess pastry so that the pastry will hold its shape while baking.

Place on parchment paper in a baking dish and brush with egg wash.

Bake for 25 – 30 minutes, until pastry is golden-brown and apples are tender. Sprinkle with sugar after removing from the oven.

Serve with English custard or ice cream.
