Here's a little reminder of a delicious British pudding you probably haven't eaten in years

This week we have dug deep into our cookbooks and found a classic recipe for a scrumptious pudding. Pupils from all key stages have worked hard peeling, coring and chopping their Bramley apples to form the delicious base of their Eve’s Pudding. Adding a sprinkle of raisins and preparing the cake mixture with great care has helped to ensure each pudding tasted fantastic! To have a crack at this simple yet scrumptious pudding at home follow the recipe below.

6 large Bramley apples, finely sliced

200g unsalted butter

140g raisins

100g soft brown sugar

4 eggs

200g self-raising flour



1.    Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Peel, core and slice the apples. Grease a large serving dish, about 2.5 litre/3 litre with 25g/1oz of the butter and tip in the apple. Scatter the raisins over the top.

2.    In a separate dish beat the remaining butter and sugar together for 10 mins until the butter turns pale and the sugar starts to dissolve. Beat in the eggs, then carefully fold in the flour with a large spoon. Spread the batter over the apples, then bake for 45 mins until golden. Serve with the custard.
