German Christmas Dessert Recipes
Baked Apples Recipe

Delicious German Christmas dessert recipes. There are many, but when it is cold outside, baked apples (Bratapfel) with a walnut filling taste especially good. Baked apples are one of my favourite recipes for Christmas.
Make sure that you use an aromatic apple type such as Boscop or Braeburn for this tasty German dessert.

German Bratapfel With Vanilla Sauce

4 medium sized apples
30g chopped walnuts
25g raisins soaked in rum
2 dessert spoons apple jelly
1 dessert spoon honey
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 dessert spoon butter

Wash the apples and remove the core. Place the apples in a greased oven proof dish. Mix together the walnuts, raisins, apple jelly, honey and cinnamon and fill the apple centres. Place flakes of butter over the apples.

Bake in a preheated oven at 200g C for about 30 minutes. They should be soft when cooked. If not eaten immediately, cover with aluminium foil. Enjoy your German christmas recipe served with

a creamy warm vanilla dessert sauce.
