Mum is not sure where she got this recipe, although she and my aunty are certain it was from their aunty may. This is such a yummy pudding. You really need a mixer such as a kitchen aid for perfect results, but hand mixing is fine. This is excellent re-heated
- stewed apples (kept hot)
- 1 tablespoon butter (large tbsp)
- 1 egg
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1 cup flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- once you have made the stewed apples keep them hot or heat them up again in the oven on a low heat before adding the mixture.
- cream butter, egg and sugar.
- keep machine on low and add sifted flour and baking powder.
- keep the machine going and add milk until it is a nice mixture which slides of a spoon but isn't like a milk (sort of like a pnacake mixture).
- pour over the hot apples and bake for about 25 minutes at 375 degrees Celsius.
- will still be moist inside.
- serve with ice cream or cream.
We made this tonight, and were very pleased with it. <br/>We did BUTTER THE BAKING DISH, and are glad we did!<br/>No amount was given, but based on making peach cobblers using cottage pudding as the topping, we used about 3-4 cups of freshly stewed apples, made with brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, mace, and cloves to our taste. We could have easily used more; the apples lost more volume than baking peaches do. Next time, and there will be a next time, we'll use 5-6 cups of apples, which will still easily fit in the BUTTERED 2 quart round casserole dish we used, without running over. Also next time, I'll probably pour about 1/3 of the batter over the apples, and stir it in, then pour the rest over that mixture.
Thanks so much Perfect pixie, I just made this x 4 for 40 people and it turned out great! It was really easy. I needed something satisfying and delicious and able to be expanded easily. Of course it needed a longer cooking time being so much bigger (I used 2 large roasting pans) but it turned out perfect. I added a handful of rasberries to each one. They loved it! Phew! Will definitely use again!
