Christmas-Style Baked-Apple Dessert

For this lovely dessert you need the following ingredients:

4 big Apples
3 Soupspoons Sugar
50g grounded Almonds
50g chopped Walnuts
50g chopped Hazelnuts
2 Soupspoons Cranberry Sauce
300g Marzipan
2 Spoons Rum (or Rum-Flavour for baking)
3 Eggs
200g Cream
1 Spoon Vanilla sugar

Caramelized Sugar

Add the sugar into a bowl with a little bit of water and heat it until the sugar is caramelized (a little brown).
Add the 3 different Nuts and mix them thoroughly. Let the Nuts and Sugar cool down and blend them roughly in a Mixer. Don’t make it too smooth, you want to have some chewy bits left.

My little helper - VERY useful

Peel the apples, cut them into halves and cut out the apple core.

A special find on the Irish Farmers Market

Mix the Cranberries with 150g Marzipan, Rum and add the Nut-Caramel-Mix.

Spread a bit of butter in an ovenproof dish, fill the apple-halves with the Marzipan-Nut-dough and put them into the dish.

Separate the Eggs and whisk the egg white until stiff.

Put the egg yolks, 150g Marzipan, Cream and Vanilla sugar into a bowl and mix them with a blender.

Add the egg whites and mix everything very carefully so the egg white does not get too runny.

Pour the Marzipansauce over the filled apples and bake the whole dish for approximately 30 Minutes at 200°C / 392°F

If the top layer is getting too brown, just cover the dish with a bit of baking paper.


Ready – have a glass of mulled wine with it or a hot tea and enjoy yourself in front of a cosy fireplace. Simply wonderful!

You can eat this dish hot or cold, served with whipped cream or ice-cream... divine.
