Bulgaria – Baked apples with vanilla syrup September 29, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — Island girl @ 1:30 pm

Oh how I miss the fall. I buy spiced candles, watch football, have friends mail me leaves to try to capture the feeling while living in the tropics. I usually can buy cider and pumpkins and of course I can cook all of my fall favorites. I have chosen from Bulgaria an apple dish with walnuts because it is that time of year! This is what we are making today.


Baked apples with vanilla syrup
8-10 eq. sized apples
1/3 cupful walnut kernels
3/2 cupful sugar
vanilla, cinnamon according to taste
50g butter

How to prepare:
Peel and carefully hollow the apples. Prepare a stuffing from the beaten butter, 3/4 cupful of sugar, crushed walnut kernels and cinnamon. Stuff the apples and place in a lined dish, pour over 1-2 spoonful of water and bake in a moderate oven. Serve cold, sweetened with syrup made from cupful of sugar, 1 cupful of water and vanilla. The same recipe may be used for quinces and pears.

I love reading other blogs and this one I found for Brunei has been a shining star. The author has two cookbooks, one My Favourite Recipes book by foodie bloggers benefits the Brunei Special Olympics and the second Pink Desserts is to benefit the Brunei Breastcancer Support Group. We don’t see any recipes on the blog, but I really want to track down this book to make some Pink Desserts!!


Trip Hole has some fantastic pictures of Brunei’s 13 most popular dishes.
