To make this chunky, crunchy bake look really professional, try to keep the bread and apple cubes the same size. If you want to be creative and use a combination of apple and pears for a change, the same applies.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
3 green apples, peeled, cored and cut into chunks
2 slices wholegrain bread, crusts removed and cubed
1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese
2 tablespoons brown sugar, plus extra to sprinkle (optional)
200ml low-fat milk
1 tablespoon lecithin
ice cream, to serve
or low-fat custard, to serve

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to very hot, 220ºC.
  2. Combine the apples, bread, cottage cheese and sugar in a large mixing bowl and toss them together well.
  3. Stir in the milk then spoon the mixture into a shallow ovenproof dish. Sprinkle with lecithin and some extra brown sugar if you want an extra-crunchy topping.
  4. Bake for 20–25 minutes until bubbling and golden. Serve hot from the oven with low-fat custard or ice cream.

Super ingredient: Apples

  • Rich in flavonoid antioxidants and the soluble fibre pectin (both renowned for their heart protective capabilities), is it any wonder that an apple a day keeps the doctor away? Fat-free and low in kilojoules, an average apple has only a modest 315 kilojoules (75 calories), making it a good between-meal snack or a crisp, sweet finish to a meal. Their carbohydrate (mostly fructose) is low GI and is digested slowly, keeping blood sugar levels steady. Apples are packed with essential minerals like potassium and magnesium.
