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
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!
- 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! 🙂
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 appétit and a very Happy Thanksgiving Thursday to my American chums! 😀
