Food for Thought; Baked Apple Bombs

So we are off on our second weaning journey….


Which means a new found love of going through the Baby Led Weaning cookbook by Gill Rapley to find new foods for the Baby to try that we can all eat as well.

One sad, tired looking apple later and a little twist on an apple bomb recipe the boys got served up Baked Apple Bombs.  Soft and sweet for the Baby to gum without any added sugar.

Baked Apple Bombs


1 Apple, cored and halved
1/2 tsp cinammon
1 tbsp water
Knob of butter
Handful of raisins

How to do it

1.  Preheat the oven to 180C and grease a baking dish

2.  Core and halve the apple before placing face down in the dish


3.  Sprinkle with cinammon and raisins

4.  Place a small knob of butter on each apple half


5.  Bake for 30-40 minutes until soft.


We ate our on their own but they would be delicious served with custard.

    You can’t beat a good baked apple (and I’m still working on that 😉 ) hope the boys enjoyed them. Perhaps in twenty or so years time they’ll let onto their wife just how much they like them X #cookblogshare

    I remember the weaning stage well! I loved making baked apples as I always did extra so we could have some with custard as a dessert! These sound perfect for both your little one and as a pudding x #CookBlogShare

    Delicious… Served, smothered in ice-cream …YUM!

    My kids are picky about baked raisins! I keep adding them, presuming that they’ll just get over it… That hasn’t happened yet 🙂

      I was picky about baked raisins there’s only so far they can go before they get burnt!
