This recipe also comes from Ruth Isabel Ross' "Irish Baking Book" and is truly gorgeous. I like it best after a stressful day, cause it is such a comfort food.


  1. Grate the apple coarsely. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. In a bowl combine flour, baking powder, honey and cinnamon. In a second bowl cream the butter.
  3. Add the butter to the flour mixture and blend well.
  4. Stir in the grated apple and fill the dough into 2 oven-proof dishes.
  5. Bake for about 40 minutes (you might have to cover the puddings after 20 minutes if they get too brown on top).
  6. Serve with whipped cream, vanilla ice-cream or vanilla sauce.

I haven't yet tried this recipe, but I wanted to share a website I found for converting weights to volumes.

I found this site very helpful. It seems that 125 g of flour equals 1 cup, 100 g of honey is not quite 5 tablespoons, and 100 g of butter is 7 tablespoons.

This looks easy and sounds good. I intend to try it very soon. Then I'll be in a better position to rate it.

Delightful! We started drooling while this was cooking as it fill the house with such a tasty aroma. This is really nice right out of the oven with all that wonderful warm honey and apple yumm. DH and I both thought would be great with vanilla ice cream, but sadly had to settle for a dollop of cream as we were out of ice cream. Made as written. Thanks so much for the post.

Like another reviewer, I used conversions to make this recipe. And I wonder if something wasn't working correctly in the conversion feature, because we didn't detect any honey sweetness at all and felt the flour dominated over all the flavors. But I did like the idea of this Baked Apple Pudding recipe, and it's a great way to use our extra apples. So I will continue to experiment with this recipe until I find the right U.S. conversions that work well for us. Thanks, Lalaloula.
