Foodie Friday – Eve’s pudding


Eve’s pudding has become a family favourite in our house but I literally fell across it about 8 or so years agony accident when looking for a pastry-less fruit pie ( the husband hates pastry ).

I didn’t know what it was at the time but hearing it combined the awesomeness of a crumble but with a cake top, whats not to love?!

So here’s what you need if you want to give it a try yourself.

Fruit of your choice. (Its traditionally made with apple’s hence the name but any fruit will and does work, its particularly nice with apple and strawberries)

A simple cake recipe, I use a simple one:

100g caster sugar

100g self raising flour

100g butter or margarine

1 large egg or 1 small egg and a splash of milk

Line your cake dish with fruit, if you are using apples sprinkle with brown sugar (white works just as well its just for taking the bite from the fruit)

Mix up your cake recipe as normal then pour on top of your fruit then bake in a pre heated oven at about 160 for around 45 mins or until cooked through.

Leave to cool then cut and serve with a topping of your choice. Custard is always a firm fave but spray cream or ice cream in the summer is always welcome or just as it comes.
