I would call this a cobbler, rather than pudding, myself. It was very good, and would only be better with vanilla ice cream (I had a glass of milk and that did nicely). I would cut down the raisins next time; they seem to overpower the flavor of the apples and maple.
Very good, love the pure maple syrup taste. I only Gala apples so used them, turned out very good but a little too sweet, probably would be better with a tart apple or less syrup. Thanks for a very nice recipe.
