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! :)





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! :D
