  • 1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • 2 tablespoon Water
  • 3 tablespoon Caster Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180°c (160 fan/ Gas 4/ 350F) and lightly grease a 1.5-2 litre baking dish.

    125 g Butter, 125 g Golden Caster Sugar
  • Beat in the eggs and vanilla extract.
    2 Eggs, 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

    125 g Self-Raising Flour
  • Place the chopped apples, lemon juice and water in a large saucepan and cook on a medium heat for 7-8 minutes until the apples turn soft and mushy.
    750 g Bramley Apples, 1 tablespoon Lemon Juice, 2 tablespoon Water
  • Stir in the caster sugar and cinnamon then spoon the apples into the prepared baking dish.
    3 tablespoon Caster Sugar, 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • Top the apples with the vanilla sponge and bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes until the sponge is golden brown.

Notes

Expert Tips:
  1. Make the sponge mixture first, then peel and chop the apples ready for stewing. This will prevent them from going brown.
  2. Make sure all of the sponge ingredients are at room temperature before beginning the recipe. This will ensure your sponge is light and fluffy!
  3. Skip the cinnamon if you don't like it, or swap it for mixed spice.
 
Variations:
  • Add fresh berries to the apples. Blackberries, raspberries, or blueberries would work well! Just stir them in once the Bramley apples have been stewed.
  • Other fruit such as plums or rhubarb can also be used!
  • Sprinkle a little demerara sugar or brown sugar over the sponge for an extra sweet crunchy topping.
  • Add flaked almonds to the top of the sponge.
  • Make slow cooker Eve's pudding!
  • Swap some of the self-raising flour for ground almonds which will produce an extra moist sponge.
 
Storage:
The apple pudding is best served warm from the oven.
Store: Leftovers can be placed in an airtight container and stored in the fridge for up to 3 days.
Reheat: Microwave or warm the pudding in the oven before serving. You can also eat it at room temperature!
Freeze: Apple sponge can be frozen. Allow to cool, cover with foil and freeze for up to 3 months. Defrost before reheating in the oven.
