Weightwatchers Friendly Apple Charlotte...

I found this recipe on a TV show called The Great British Food Show and thought this could be Nipped and Tucked, so after 2 attempts i got it just right. The mix of apples, cinnamon and honey tucked inside a bread and butter case made this a perfect comfort dessert and all for a Weightwatchers value of just 2 Pro Points. 

I served this with warm Devon Low Fat custard


Servings 4

Each Charlotte contains 1 slice of bread and 1/4 of the apple mixture and 1 tsp of melted Flora

Pro Points per serving 2


For the Apple mixture

3 apples chopped into small chunks (I used 1 Golden Delicious, 1 Jazz Apple and 1 Pink Lady purely because i had them on hand and there my favorite)

1 Tbl of Canderelle (I have a sweet tooth)

1 Tbl of  Honey (I used Accia)

1 tsp of Mixed Spice

1 tsp of Cinnamon

For the Casing

4 slices of Weight Watchers white bread (crusts removed)

4 tsp of Flora Pro Active


Place apple chunks in a bowel and pour the honey onto the apples, add the spices and mix together

Transfer to a saucepan and heat on a low -medium heat for roughly 5 minutes.

Take the crust less bread and slice a long side about an inch thick and repeat on the other side leaving the large piece in the middle.

Take the middle bread and slice in half.

Melt the flora for 30 seconds in the microwave (or in a saucepan but just till its liquid) 

Dip one side of a half middle piece into the flora and place butter side down at the bottom of the ramekin, dip one side of the side long piece into the flora and and place on side of the ramekin with the buttered side to the wall of the ramekin and repeat with the next side long piece.

Take the apple mixture and spoon the apples into the middle until completely full and almost overflowing and then top with a middle half with the buttered side facing up. 

Place in the oven on GM 5 for 12-15 minutes 

Remove from oven and place a saucer on-top of the ramekin and turn upside down, it should just slide out.

Top with a Tablespoon of warm custard or yogurt (extra Pro Points)
