Warming up chilled bones and filling hungry tummies is what Bonfire Night food’s all about. It also needs to be easy to prepare, taste great and appeal to children as well as adults.
There’s no end of recipes available for this time of year, so we’ve put together a selection guaranteed to satisfy the biggest and fussiest of appetites.
Here’s number 3.
Time for a wickedly wonderful dessert.
Toffee Apple Pie
Perfect if you love toffee apples but hate the mess involved with eating them. And if you’ve got a sweet tooth of course.
What You’ll Need.
• Shop bought pastry – make your own if you prefer
• 150g caster sugar
• 3 tbsp corn flour
• 0.5 tsp ground cinnamon
• 750g thinly sliced cooking apples
• 120ml of your favourite toffee sauce
• 30g chopped pecan nuts
How you make it
Switch your oven to 200c/gas mark 6, and place a baking tray in the middle.
Roll out 2-sheets of pastry and line a 23cm pie dish with one of them. Then mix together the sugar, corn flour and cinnamon. Add the apples and keep mixing.
When the apple slices are covered by the mixture, pour it all into the pie dish and dribble the toffee sauce over the top. Be generous! Sprinkle the pecans before topping it all off with the remaining sheet of pastry. Trim the edges and make a small slit for the steam to escape.
It needs about 45 mins to cook, and an hour to cool. Then it’s ready to for you to tuck into.
Best served warm with cream, ice cream or custard. Or try it cold the next day when it’s cooled in the fridge.
