One of my family's favorite desserts, this apple pudding is just too easy to make. Serve with packaged or homemade custard, whipped cream or ice cream. Recipe serves 4.
4 apples, peeled and sliced
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 ounces (125 g) butter
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 tablespoon water
1 cup self-rising (raising) flour
1. Arrange apple slices over base of greased ovenproof dish (6 cup capacity), sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.
2. Cream butter and sugar in small bowl with electric mixer until light and fluffy, add eggs 1 at a time, beating until combined after each addition. Add water, beat until just combined. Fold in sifted flour.
3. Pour mixture over apples, bake in moderate oven for about 40 minutes or until pudding is golden brown and apples are soft. Dust with sifted icing sugar.
