This apple tart is a fail-safe recipe, my friend Jackie assures me.
Although Jackie is not mad about cooking and baking, when she does something she likes it to be a success. She also doesn't like to take chances so when her sister asked her to make a dessert for their family's Mother's Day Lunch this was her first choice. She says she 's made this pudding for almost every occasion that she's had to take a dessert to and she always brings back an empty dish and a lot of compliments!
I can remember making a similar dish for a Girl Guide achievement badge and with my poor baking track record I know that I was able to make the pudding and get the badge. So, for anyone needing to make a warm, comforting pudding for the family this is the way to go. The pudding can be served hot or cold, with cream, custard or ice-cream - really versatile.
- 1 large tin of pie apples
- 3 large eggs
- 3 tbs butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 125ml milk
- 1 cup flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- tin evaporated milk
- 1 cup sugar
- 1tsp vanilla essence
Cream the butter and sugar together. Beat the egg and milk together and add to the butter mixture. Sift the dry ingredients and add to the egg mixture. Pour the dough into a greased oven dish and carefully place the drained pie apples on top. Bake for 45 minutes in a preheated oven at 180°C. Heat up sauce ingredients and simmer for 5 minutes. Pour it over the hot pudding. Serve with cream, ice-cream or custard.
Jackie says she made two puddings (it was a really large family gathering) and she replaced the pie apples with drained tins of mixed fruit cocktail for the second pudding. You could also sprinkle a bit of cinnamon over the apple tart just before serving.
Thanks Jackie for a great recipe!
