Bec Kaye, executive chef at Dead Man Espresso and Common Galaxia shares her simple recipe for stuffed and baked apples.
It’s Sunday morning, you’re enveloped in a mountain of doona, enjoying the last moments of sleep and debating the age-old Sunday morning dilemma: stay in your PJs and enjoy breakfast in bed, or venture out into the world for a chef-made meal?
We say stay in your PJs and whip up this simple and tasty dish from Common Galaxia’s new spring menu: whole baked apple with fig and walnut stuffing, served with Full of Grace granola and yoghurt.
All the ingredients you need are readily available at your local market or food store and, better still, you’ll probably already have most of them in your cupboard.
Common Galaxia use Full of Grace granola for its ginger and date flavours – you can pick up a box at either Common Galaxia or Deadman Espresso, or substitute with a granola of your choice.
However, if the idea of facing the oven on Sunday morning isn’t your caper, head down to Common Galaxia and have the lady herself make it for you.
