Apple and Golden Syrup Pudding

FONT SIZE: A+ A-

The great thing about apples is that there’s always one variety in season. You can use an alternative to Granny Smiths to make our Apple and Golden Syrup Pudding and it will be just as delicious.

Serves 4

Ingredients
4 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and cut into eight wedges
1/4 cup caster sugar
75g cold butter, chopped finely
1 lightly beaten egg
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1/4 cup golden syrup
1 cup self-raising flour
75g melted butter
1/4 cup milk
Icing sugar to dust

Method
Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan forced.
Grease a shallow square ovenproof baking dish.
Place apple in prepared dish and sprinkle with cinnamon.
Combine syrup, melted butter and 2 tablespoons of boiling water in a heatproof jug. Pour over apple. Cover with foil; bake for 30 minutes stirring halfway through cooking.
Place the flour and caster sugar in a medium bowl. Use fingertips to rub in cold butter.
Stir in combined egg and milk. Drop tablespoons of pudding mixture onto the top of the hot apple.
Bake, uncovered for 30 minutes or until golden and cooked.
Serve dusted with icing sugar and if you’re feeling really decadent, thick pouring cream.

I combine golden syrup, melted butter and apple cider, gives a better taste (IMO) also I use melted butter instead of rubbing in the cold butter. Use the back of a knife to mix all the remaining ingredients into a batter, then pour over apples.Have even baked this in a campfire, always a favourite with custard.

Straight to the hips, and cholesterol and sugar readings up. Would have to walk 5ks . Sorry, not my piece of cake. (although it does look delicious.)

Hi therem
I cooked this at the weekend and it was fabulous. I thought it would be like the usual apple crumble but no. The apple was all the better by being cooked in the oven and the sponge top was just delicious. Thankyou for this recipe. I have forwarded it to my friends and taken another copy as mine got splattered with goodness. Don't forget a big dollop of Aussie Farmers cream on it as well!!! yummmmm!
