This perfect pastry pudding is packed with fruity goodness and delivers a cool cinnamon kick that the whole family will love - delicious served hot or cold.


700g cooking apples
25g sultanas
½ level tsp cinnamon
Grated zest of 1 lemon
Artificial sweetener, to taste
Low calorie cooking spray
4 x small sheets filo pastry
25g low-fat spread, melted
1 level tsp icing sugar, for dusting


Peel and core the cooking apples and slice them thinly. Mix in a bowl with the sultanas, cinnamon and lemon zest. Sweeten to taste with artificial sweetener.

Spray a large baking sheet with low calorie cooking spray and place a sheet of filo pastry on top.

Brush very lightly with the low-fat spread and then cover with a second sheet. Repeat with the remaining two sheets, brushing with more low-fat spread.

Spoon the apple filling onto the pastry lengthways, leaving the pastry uncovered at the edges. Now roll up from one long side into a cylinder, with the pastry join underneath. Pinch the ends of the cylinder to seal in the filling.

Brush with the remaining melted low-fat spread and then bake in a preheated oven at 190°C/170°C

Fan/Gas Mark 5 for 25-30 minutes, until the pastry is crisp and golden brown.

Cool slightly before dusting with icing sugar and cutting into thin slices to serve.
