This perfect pastry pudding is packed with fruity goodness and delivers a cool cinnamon kick that the whole family will love - delicious served hot or cold.

ingredients

  • 700g cooking apples
  • 25g sultanas
  • ½ level tsp cinnamon
  • Grated zest of 1 lemon
  • Artificial sweetener, to taste
  • Low calorie oil spray (less than one calorie per spray)
  • 4 x small sheets filo pastry
  • 25g low-fat spread, melted
  • 1 level tsp icing sugar, for dusting

method

  1. Peel and core the cooking apples and slice them thinly. Mix in a bowl with the sultanas, cinnamon and lemon zest. Sweeten to taste with artificial sweetener.
  2. Spray a large baking sheet with low calorie oil spray and place a sheet of filo pastry on top. Brush very lightly with the low-fat spread and then cover with a second sheet. Repeat with the remaining two sheets, brushing with more low-fat spread.
  3. Spoon the apple filling onto the pastry lengthways, leaving the pastry uncovered at the edges. Now roll up from one long side into a cylinder, with the pastry join underneath. Pinch the ends of the cylinder to seal in the filling.
  4. Brush with the remaining melted low-fat spread and then bake in a preheated oven at 190°C/170°C Fan/Gas Mark 5 for 25-30 minutes, until the pastry is crisp and golden brown.
  5. Cool slightly before dusting with icing sugar and cutting into thin slices to serve.
