Eve’s pudding


If you’re looking for a bit of sweet comfort food, then look no further! This recipe is from the BBC Food website and serves 6, but we just halved the amounts here (and left out the raisins because Tom doesn’t like them!). We had a huge batch of cooking apples from our neighbour, so I made a big pan of stewed apple and froze the rest of it, so there will be plenty of Eve’s pudding (and crumble) for us – yay!


6 large Bramley apples, peeled, cored and sliced
200g/7oz unsalted butter, softened
110g/4oz brown sugar
2 tbsp golden syrup
large pinch ground cinnamon
140g/5oz raisins
200g/7oz self raising flour.
4 free-range eggs
vanilla ice cream, to serve


1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.

2. Grease a large serving dish with 25g/1oz of the butter then scatter in the apple slices. Sprinkle over one or two tablespoons of the brown sugar, the golden syrup, cinnamon and finally the raisins.

3. In a mixing bowl, beat together the remaining butter and sugar with a wooden spoon until pale and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then use a large metal spoon to gently fold in the flour.

4. Spoon the batter over the apples and gently even out with the back of the spoon.

5. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until golden-brown and cooked through. Serve warm with ice cream.
