- 125 g butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup sifted flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 tin pie apples (or fresh/tinned pears)
- ½ cup cream
- ¼ cup sugar
Cream the butter and sugar together. Add the eggs one at a time. Add the sifted flour, baking powder and salt and mix well.
Pour over deep tart dish, with pie apples evenly arranged.
Cook at 180 degrees celsius for 25 minutes. It will look underdone (raw even) in the middle – you really want it to look that way. Resist the temptation to let it cook for longer.
For the sauce heat 1/2 cup of cream with 1/4 cup sugar and pour over warm pudding. Sprinkle with toasted flaked almonds whilst still warm and sticky. Serve warm with whipped cream, crème fraiche or ice cream.
