  • 200g (7oz) diced apples in syrup
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 100g (3½oz) raisins
  • 1 block of Silly Yak puff pastry
  • 1 free-range egg, beaten
  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC/Gas Mark 6. Dust the surface and roll the pastry out 5mm (¼in) thick. Cut a 30x20cm (12x8in) rectangle. Remove the excess pastry.
  2. In a bowl, mix the apples, cinnamon and raisins. Place the mixture across the centre of the pastry in a strip about 6cm (2½in) wide
  3. With a sharp knife, cut the pastry into squares, and fold into parcels, ensuring there are no gaps to let the filling run out.
  4. Alternately, cut the pastry into strips, and fold in a criss cross pattern over the top of the filling to form the plait. One from the top, followed by one from the bottom and repeat until all strips are interwoven.
  5. Brush with whisked egg and place on a lined baking tray
  6. Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes until the pastry is golden brown.
