Apple Cider and Pecan Pudding

Apple Cider and Pecan Pudding

Learn how to make this beautifully infused Apple CIder Bobbing Pudding. Perfect for the colder months, it's a sweetly appley sponge giving way to a melting puddle of caramel-scented sauce.

Serves: 6

What you will need:

For the Sponge

  • 2 medium Bramley apples/cooking apples, peeled, cored and sliced into inch-thick wedges
  • 140g self-raising flour
  • 100g golden caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder

  • A pinch of salt

  • 85g butter, melted, plus extra for greasing

  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


For the Sauce

What to do:

1. Pre-heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Grease a medium baking dish lightly with butter. Arrange the apple slices in a layer over the bottom of the dish.

2. Put the flour, golden caster sugar, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. 

3. Whisk together the milk, melted butter, egg and vanilla extract. Whisk this into the dry ingredients until you get a smooth batter. Pour the batter on top of the apple slices in the dish and smooth with a spatula.


4. For the topping, pour 250ml boiling water over the tea in a small bowl or jug. Leave for 3 minutes, then strain the tea (discard the solids).


5. Pour the strained tea over the sugar in a jug and stir together until smooth. Pour this liquid over the batter and apples in the dish, then scatter over the pecan nuts. It will look a soggy mess, but don’t worry – magic happens while it is in the oven!

6. Bake for about 40 minutes, until the pudding has risen and is golden brown. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or a drizzle of cold pouring cream.


7. Brew yourself a cuppa and enjoy with a slice of pudding.
