Pink Lady Pudding!

So the Pink Lady apples we purchased at the Central Park Farmers Market last week were quickly disappearing from the fruit bowl - even the big lad was eating them and he has a general lack of enthusiasm towards any fruit other than berries! I had to stash a few so I could whip up this old faithful recipe for our dessert last night, and as it turns out the Pink Lady apples are just as good cooked as they are fresh...

This recipe is an old family favourite, passed down from my mum, from her mum. It's so good and so easy! Last night I added some dates just to mix it up a little, but I'm thinking walnuts would also work well.

Spicy Apple Pudding

2 apples, sliced or chopped
2 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup self raising flour
1 egg

3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 cup hot water
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon mixed spice

Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
Place the apple, sugar and flour in an oven proof dish, mix well. Whisk together egg and melted butter, add to the apple mix.
Melt the brown sugar into the hot water, with the butter and mixed spice.
Bake for 40-45 minutes. 

Serve with ice cream, cream or in our case, natural Greek yoghurt
