This is one of the most popular desserts in my home country, Bosnia. Poached apples, stuffed with walnuts, topped with whipped cream and served in poaching syrup.
6 Apples – use Golden Delicious apples
3 cups water
2 cups sugar
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup powder sugar
1 cup whipping cream
Combine water and sugar in a pot, bring to boil. Peel and core apples.
Reduce heat to medium high, add apples and boil for about 5 minutes on each side. Turn off the heat, transfer to a plate to cool. Reserve syrup.
Make whipping cream as usual. I always chill the whisk and bowl in the freezer for about 10 minutes and also make sure the cream is very cold. Beat whipping cream on medium speed, add 1 tablespoon of powder sugar and keep beating on high until stiff peak.
In a separate bowl combine walnuts and powder sugar; add 2 tablespoon of whipped cream and 2-3 tablespoons of syrup to make filling.
Stuff apples with walnut filling, top with remaining whipping cream. I like to put cherries on top but that’s optional.
