Eve’s Pudding

Mum and I often made Eve’s Pudding (from the Be-Ro cookbook) when I was a child. (You can read about it and my other favourite cookbooks right here.) Anyway, Eve’s Pudding is a great British winter pudding – nice and warming after you’ve been out shovelling (yet more) Danish snow! ;D

View from my front step at 5pm tonight. 

You could halve this recipe, if you like – the original recipe calls for only half – but I feel you need this quantity. And the leftovers taste great!

You’ll need:

  • about 6 apples
  • 100 g (or 4 oz) margarine or soft butter
  • 100 g (or 4 oz) sugar
  • 100 g (or 4 oz) flour
  • 2 eggs

Peel the apples. I used six cooking apples (from the trees in our garden).

Slice the apples – not too fine, otherwise they disintegrate after cooking – we don’t want mush… Put in a baking dish and sprinkle (liberally) with sugar.

Cream the butter and sugar.

Add one egg at a time, plus a little flour, and beat well.

Fold the remaining flour in gently.

Spread over the sliced apples.

Ready for the oven and time for spoon licking! ūüôā

Pop into the warm oven 350f or 180c for about 30 minutes.

It’s ready when slightly puffed and golden brown.

Best enjoyed with icecream or – my personal favourite – a big dollop of whipped cream…mmmm!

Bon app√©tit and a very Happy Thanksgiving Thursday to my American chums! ūüėÄ
