Apple and Raisin Plait


  • ½ tin diced apples in syrup
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 100g raisins
  • 1 block Silly Yak puff pastry
  • 1 egg, beaten


1 Pre-heat oven to 200C/gas 6. Dust your surface and roll the pastry out, approx. 5mm thick. Cut a rectangle approx. 30cm long and 20cm wide. Remove excess pastry.

2 In a bowl, mix the apples, cinnamon and raisins. Place the mixture across the center of the pastry in a strip approx. 6cm wide

3 With a sharp knife, cut strips approx. 1cm wide along the pastry, starting from the apple filling moving out to the edge of the pastry. Do this above and below the filling.

4 Alternately wrap the strips of pastry 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 for 35-40 minutes until pastry is golden brown.
