Eve’s pudding was probably my favourite dessert as a child and it always brings back memories when I bake this dish.
I have my friend Gayle to thank for this recipe, she has gone on at me for months to make her Eve’s pudding. The only problem was that I was quite determined that it had to be my Mum’s old recipe. My Mum made the best Eve’s pudding I’ve ever eaten. A proper old fashioned pudding from my childhood and given the abundance of apple trees in our garden, we ate this a lot! In my opinion Eve’s pudding should have apples tossed in a little cinnamon (although this is not traditional), topped with a soft sponge and a thick dome shaped crust! It is pudding heaven in a bowl.
A few weeks ago I was visiting my sister Judith, she’s moved into a new house and there are two mature apple trees in her garden. One of the trees was full of deliciously sweet eating apples. So armed with my Mum’s recipe and a bag of my sisters apples I set to making a few puddings. To watch my own children’s faces as they tried the pudding was sheer delight, they loved it as much as I did as child. I’ve made it weekly for the past month. I did make a pudding for my friend, Gayle was delighted and she scoffed the lot, although her son did sneak in and steal the crust off the top when she wasn’t looking.
