Equipment

  • 20cm round pudding dish

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter 40 grams - softened
  • 4 tablespoons caster sugar 60 grams
  • 1 egg
  • 6 tablespoons self raising flour 90 grams
  • pinch of salt

For the Stewed Apples

  • 4 medium granny smith apples peeled, cored and chopped into quarters
  • 1 tablespoon of caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 190 degrees and lightly grease a 20cm round oven proof dish.
  • Slice the apples into quarters and place them into a medium saucepan and fill with water until they are almost covered. Add a teaspoon of cinnamon and heaped tablespoon of caster sugar to the water. Cook over a medium heat for approximately 6 - 8 minutes or until the apples have softened.
  • Retain 2 tablespoons of the cooking liquid before draining the rest and set aside until needed.
  • Place the softened butter, 4 tablespoons of caster sugar and the retained liquid from the apples into the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until well combined.
  • Add the egg and mix well to combine before adding the self raising flour and a pinch of salt.
  • Place the stewed apples over the base of the baking dish and spoon the cake mixture over the top.
  • Place the pudding into the preheated oven and bake for 35 minutes or until the cake has cooked through when tested with a skewer.
  • Carefully remove the pudding from the oven and allow it to cool slightly before serving.

Thermomix Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 190 degrees and lightly grease a 20cm round oven proof dish.
  • Add 200 grams of water to your Thermomix bowl and add the apple quarters, cinnamon and caster sugar. Cook for 10 minutes, varoma temperature, speed 1 on REVERSE.
  • Retain 2 tablespoons (40 grams) of the cooking liquid before draining the rest and set aside until needed. I find it easiest to pour the apples in the basket and let the fluid drain.
  • Place the softened butter, caster sugar and the retained liquid from the apples into the Thermomix bowl and mix for 10 seconds, speed 4.
  • Add the egg, self raising flour and a pinch of salt and mix for 10 seconds, speed 3 to combine.
  • Scrape down the sides of your Thermomix bowl and mix for a further 5 seconds, speed 4 to combine.
  • Place the stewed apples over the base of the baking dish and spoon the cake mixture over the top.
  • Place the pudding into the preheated oven and bake for 35 minutes or until the cake has cooked through when tested with a skewer.
  • Carefully remove the pudding from the oven and allow it to cool slightly before serving.

Notes

You can omit the caster sugar when stewing the apples if you wish.
This pudding can also be baked in individual baking dishes if you prefer, the cooking time will vary however.
