Here, Junior brings you a sneak peek of the cookbook's suitably robust recipes, sure to prove popular with little men and ladies alike.
75g ground almonds
15g Demerara sugar
25ml apple brandy
3g ground cinnamon
60g softened butter
45g chopped apricots
Mix all of the ingredients together, except the apples, and leave to macerate at room temperature for 1 hour. Core the apples and fill with the mix; any excess mixture can be pressed on top. Bake in the oven at 180°C until the apples are soft. Any liquid and excess mixture can be poured into a small pan, brought to the boil and stirred until the mixture has thickened and created a sauce.
Place the apples on a large plate and pour over the extra sauce. Serve with crème fraîche
