4 eating apples, such as Cox’s, cored and cut into wedges

Juice of ½ lemon

A few pinches ground cinnamon

30g butter

100g light muscovado sugar

2 tbsp golden syrup

1 Toss the apple wedges in the lemon juice then thread them onto wooden skewers. Place on a foil-lined grill pan and sprinkle over the ground cinnamon. Set aside while making the toffee sauce.

2 Place the butter, sugar, syrup and cream in a small pan. Place over a gentle heat, stirring, until the butter melts. Increase the heat slightly and bring to the boil. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is thickened slightly. Remove from the heat, pour into bowls and allow to cool slightly.

3 Grill the apple skewers for about 5 minutes, turning once, until just beginning to soften. Serve with the warm toffee sauce.
