Flavoured with ginger and cinnamon, these baked apples are the perfect pudding for cold Autumn evenings.

Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Slice the apples horizontally (into about 8-10 slices per apple) and reassemble. Put the apples in a baking dish.

Beat together the butter, 75g (3oz) sugar, the salt, 2 tbsp cream and the spices. Stir in the pecans and spoon the mixture into the centre of each apple, piling it up on top.

Pour 25ml (1fl oz) water, the rest of the sugar and the remaining cream into the dish around the apples (this will form a toffee sauce as the apples cook). Bake for 35-40 minutes, stirring the sauce occasionally and basting the apples, until soft and lightly browned. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream, cream or custard.
