  • The butterscotch sauce on these spiced apple wedges takes a lot of the bitterness from the fruit- a perfect way to get kids into fruit!


    • 2 large eating apples (such as Braeburns)
    • 75g (1oz) butter
    • 75g (3oz) soft brown sugar
    • 100g (4oz) golden syrup
    • 150ml (1/4pt) double cream
    • Pot of thick cream or plain yogurt.


    • Cut the apples into wedges and sprinkle with ground mixed spice.

    • Heat 25g (1oz) butter in a non-stick frying pan and fry the apple wedges until golden and beginning to soften.

    • In a separate pan melt 50g (2oz) butter with the soft brown sugar and golden syrup.

    • Cook gently for 5 mins, then remove from the heat and stir in double cream.

    • Add a squeeze of lemon juice and return to the heat for 1-2 mins.

    • Pour the hot sauce over the apple wedges and serve with thick cream or plain yogurt.
