Foolproof apple and sponge pudding
0 minutes
0 minutes
8 adults
  • 100 g plain flour (or self-raising if you want to to make an authentic, more risen Eve's pudding)
  • 100 g butter, softened
  • 100 g unrefined caster sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 Bramley apples, peeled and thickly sliced
  • Tablespoon of caster sugar to sprinkle on apples
  • Squeeze of lemon (optional)
  • Pinch of cinnamon (optional)

Preheat your oven to 180C. Slice your apples directly into a medium sized baking dish. Mine was 23cm in diameter Squeeze a little lemon and sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over, then mix. To make your sponge, whisk sugar and butter together for a couple of minutes. Then add an egg at a time and whisk, each with a little flour. Finally incorporate all the flour in using the whisk. Pour over the apples and spread with a palette knife or similar to smooth the top. There will be apples peeking out, but that's nice I think. Bake for 40 minutes. Eat warm with cream or ice cream. Or cold is good too. I bet this doesn't last a full day in your house, it didn't in mine.
