Submitted by: Mélisande Bodiguel, Montreal

“The gingerbread from my childhood, flavoured with cinnamon, filling the house with the fragrance of Christmas.”


  • 6 Juicy apples (Gala, Fuji or Ginger Gold)
  • 2 tbsp(s) Brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp(s) Soft unsalted butter
  • Crumbled Gingerbread
  • Pinch Ground cinnamon

Cooking Instructions

  • Core the apples using an apple corer.
  • Score the apple skin horizontally around the middle, so they do not burst in the oven.
  • Place the apples in a baking dish.
  • Stuff the apples with crumbled gingerbread.
  • Moisten the apples with a little water and sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon.
  • Dot the apples with butter.
  • Bake at 350°F for 35 to 40 minutes, depending on the size of the apples.
  • Pierce with a skewer to test if they are soft.
  • When the brown sugar has dissolved and the gingerbread is soft, remove from the oven and serve.
  • For even more flavour, sprinkle with a light dusting of cinnamon before serving.
