How to Bake a Delicious Eve's Pudding

by Sophie Bennett

A delicious, light apple sponge with a slight hint of cinnamon.


  • 75 Grams Butter/margarine
  • 75 Grams Caster Sugar
  • 125 Grams Self raising flour
  • Pinch of baking powder
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon Milk
  • 4 Large cooking apples
  • 4 Tablespoons Water
  • 75 Grams Sugar (Granulated)
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    These are the ingredients you will need.

    Step 2

    Slightly grease a wide casserole bowl with butter, the dish shouldn't be too deep. Peel and slice the apple, they should be roughly half a centimetre thick. Then start layering the apple in the dish.

    Step 3

    This is how it should look when all the apple is cut and in place.

    Step 4

    Next, pour the water over the apple and sprinkle the granulated sugar (not the caster) and the cinnamon on top - you can add a little more cinnamon depending on your preferences.

    Step 5

    You now need to make the sponge. Mix the remaining ingredients (flour, baking powder, butter, caster sugar, eggs and milk) all together.

    Step 6

    This is how the mixture should look. Again leave the mixer on a few seconds too long to ensure there is enough air in the sponge so it rises nicely.

    Step 7

    This is slightly tricky as the apple often gets attached to the spatula but you need to spread the mixture over the apple.

    Step 8

    Finally put the dish in the oven for 180 degrees on a fan setting for 45-50 minutes. Take it out when the top looks nice and brown (see above). Serve alone or with some warm custard. Enjoy :-)
