Pudding With Apples
I was looking for new ways with apples and came across the recipe for this simple dessert. It uses almond flour rather than wheat flour.
I wasn’t quite sure how this pudding would turn out when I started cooking this but I loved the simple idea. I was delighted with the result – it is simple enough to put together quickly and good enough for Sunday lunch pudding. It makes a change from Apple Crumble, too!
This delicious dessert is a great alternative pudding to Apple Crumble of Eve’s Pudding
I found the idea on Delia Online. It is actually very similar to Eve’s Pudding except that the sponge on top is made with ground almonds rather than flour. This is good if you are trying a wheat free diet – or if you simply like the almond taste and crispier texture it creates.
It is very easy to make – just stew the apples first and them mix butter, sugar, eggs and almonds to make the topping. Serve hot or cold with cream or ice cream.
Apples are so versatile to make many low cost desserts – and with a bit of health benefit too! Plus Bramley apples are available all year round because they are put in cold storage after they are harvested.
Apple Almond Pudding
- 2 large baking apples, peeled and chopped
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2-3 tablespoons water
- 110g / 4ozs sugar
- 110g / 4ozs butter
- 2 eggs beaten
- 110g ground almonds
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C
- Place the chopped apple, sugar and water in a saucepan
- Heat and gently stir until the apple is soft
- In a bowl beat together the butter and sugar
- Add the eggs and stir well
- Add add the ground almonds and gently stir into the mixture
- Grease a small baking dish
- Place the stewed apples in the bottom
- Cover with the almond mixture
- Bake in the oven for about an hour

A Swedish version of this recipe (Fransk Äppelkaka) separates the eggs and adds the zest of half a lemon to the mixture. Only the yolks are mixed with the butter etc, the whites are beaten until stiff and gently folded into the final mixture. Makes for a really light and delicious topping.
I will try this – thank you 🙂

Can the apple almond pudding be placed in the freezer, for consumption at a later date ?
Yes it is ideal for freezing
Yummy. Enjoyed this last night with custard. Would it also work with raisins mixed into the apple mixture?
