These baked apples with blackberries and cinnamon make a wonderful breakfast, but they taste so good, you may want to serve them for dessert!

Is that right, 8 apples?

The recipe says it serves 6 so that's probably right.

I used 2 green apples instead of the recommended. Doubled the berries. Kept everything else the same. It was OK but to improve it I added a third of a cup of blueberry compote on top just before serving. Now it's great.

I cut the recipe in half but I used 2 very large apples - one Granny Smith & one red type (not red delicious). And, to help prevent weight loss, I increased the walnuts by 50%. It was delicious AND, actually tasted as if there was brown sugar in it - but no! It fed 2 of us with 1 serving left over.

This recipe has some potential but as written leaves much to be desired. First of all 5 minutes is hardly enough to even get the water warm on very low heat let alone have any effect on the fruit. And I don't know what size pots the author has but a medium pan it's definitely not big enough for the full recipe. There's so much sugar in this I found it overly sweet which surprised me given there's no sweetness other than the fruit; I'd cut way back on the currants, perhaps just half a cup. There's hardly any blackberries so I'd recommend at least doubling what's in the recipe if you really want something other than a bowl of diced apples. If I decide to make this again I'm actually going to use a steaming basket. I ended up after trying to cook in a smaller pan for probably 15 + minutes, transferring things to a much larger pan, cranking the heat up to high to get things going, and then cooked on medium until things were warmed through. Still it was pretty much just diced apples. I'd say the recipe really would serve 8 not 6 especially given the carb count.
