winey baked apples, the mamatouille way

We were having friends round for dinner and I needed a dessert I could make quickly and easily - and I had apples in the fridge! I remembered reading in a Japanese cookbook ages ago about cooking apples in red wine, so I just made my own sauce with:

  • red wine
  • margarine
  • a bit of brown sugar
  • a bit of honey
  • cinnamon
  • raisins
I mixed this and poured it over 2 big apples I'd quartered but left unpeeled, and after they baked and were soft, I made a yogurt sauce with:

  • plain natural yogurt
  • cinnamon
  • nutmeg
  • honey
And I spooned that over the apples in individual bowls. It was just a last-minute decision to throw it all together, but it turned out to be a keeper!

Thanks for updating your post for the cookbook. I made apple spoon sweet yesterday and surely your yoghurt with honey and cinnamon would be a great addition.
