Recipe of the Week - Toffee Apple Pudding

I adapted this recipe from one I found on the BBC Good Food website. It's my go-to website whenever I'm looking for any ideas. Last week they had a whole host of cosy Bonfire Night recipes and it was in this section that I discovered this delight.

It's a self-saucing pudding, like our old favourite, Magic Chocolate Pudding.

I had to adapt it just a little, taking out the nuts and making it wheat and dairy free. You won't need to alter the quantities to make it non-allergy free, and if you want you could re-add a handful of pecans.

Perhaps one of the reasons I love Autumn and Winter so much is that the weather makes a perfect excuse for puddings like this one!

Once again I forgot to photograph the pudding until we were all half way through, so this is the one from the BBC!

You will need:

140g wheat free self raising flour (I love Dove's Farm)
100g caster sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
200ml soya/rice milk
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
75g melted butter
2 cooking apples, peeled and sliced
140g brown sugar

~Mix the flour, caster sugar and baking powder together in a bowl.
~In another bowl or jug mix together the milk, egg, vanilla and melted butter.
~Now add the wet mixture to the dry and beat together until smooth with a hand held whisk. It will look a bit more like a batter mixture than a cake mix.
~Arrange the sliced apples in the bottom of a pudding dish and then pour over the cake mixture.
~Mix the brown sugar with 250ml boiling water and then pour this over the cake mixture.
~Bake in a preheated oven at 180C for around 45 minutes.

You know, after writing all this out and looking at the pudding again, I think I might just make this for pudding again tonight!
