    a large whole Bramley apple
    a sweet onion
    1tbsp sultanas
    1 oz Demerara sugar
    1tsp ground cinamon
    1 oz butter
    4 fl oz apple juice or water

    Finally chop the onion and fry gently in most of the butter until soft.
    Mix with the sugar, sultanas and cinamon.
    Rinse and dry the apple, score it with a sharp knfe around the middle ( to stop the skin splitting) and remove the core.
    Place the apple in a small ovenproof dish and spoon the filling into the middle.
    Pour around the juice or water, dot with the remaining butter.
    Bake for 30mins at 190°C

    -with cream or custard and a bit more sugar sprinkled on for that extra crunch.

    This looks delicious! Out of interest, is a Bramley apple tart like a Granny Smith apple?

    Yes apparently a Granny Smith makes the best substitute.

    From cooks info:

    A Bramley is a green apple, sometimes with light-red striping, whose tangy, sharp flavour makes it very popular for cooking. The apples grow quite large, about 3 inches by 4 inches (7.5 to 10 cm.) Bramleys come on the market in the UK around the start of October.

    Lovely baked Bramleys ..

    We have a variety of apples, brought to both Spain and southern France dating back to the Roman Empire ( Reinette in French ) used for baking purposes, called a " Reineta" in Spanish and these would be perfect for your baked apples .. We use them for baked apples and stuffing of game birds as well ..

    They are quite tart however similar to Bramlays or Granny Smiths, however, without the false shine, and they are Golden Tan brownish, splotched with pale Green markings and very large and not at all shiny ..

    Thank you for posting ..

    This does look lovely @Kake Lover. I think apples are a perfect partner for onions in sweet dishes. :hungry:
