Delicious. Only addition was a sprinkling of nutmeg over the apples.

Wonderful pud!
As a result of a previous comment, I decided to stew the apples on their own first, but I'm not sure this was really necessary. I substituted the flour with gluten free - the sponge still tasted good and none of my guests guessed!

This dessert is definatly must try even if you don't like sponge puddings or even apple its got some thing for every one and it all blends in well together. I don't like sponge products but this was fantastic and my guests loved it or they said they did. I will certainly make this again. Many thanks for putting it one

Perhaps Phillippa needs to cut the apple into thinner slices?
This is a tasty and straightforward recipe - will definitely make again. I was worried that the full quantity of topping might not fit in my dish, so I only used 3/4 (3 eggs etc). I used about 2lb of apples for this reduced quantity of topping. It still made 6 servings though!

This tasted delicious but the apples weren't cooked at the same time as the sponge - ended up taking the sponge off and cooking the apple some more. All the same it was delicious but next time I might cook the apple separately first.

I added some extra cinammon to this for some extra flavouring and it was delicious! Really lovely easy pudding.

I also had too much apple, so I ended up only using 4.

I adapted this slightly ... and my version has a few extra calories ... but it tastes good!!!! I didnt use raisins but I sprinkled a mix of muscovado and soft brown sugar (approx 75g), cinammon, lemon zest and juice over the apple slices. Then I added a little cinammon to the sponge mix too. Rave reviews and clean plates all around!! Delicious!!!

I cooked this recipe last night and the sponge didn't rise.

I added all the correct ingredients in the right quantities but the butter/sugar mix never blended well with the eggs. Does anoyone know why this might be?

Thank you so much.

Add a spoonful of flour at the same time as the eggs, that should do it. Although, I make Eve's pudding all the time and I just chuck everything in the bowl and mix - always seems slightly more foolproof to me!

Try adding a spoonful of flour with the eggs to stop the mixture from splitting.

A bit bland, but if you add some mixed spice and or cinnamon, this dish is lovely. Esecially if you have diabetics in the family, as it doesn't contain too much sugar.

Excellent. We really enjoyed this and it is dead simple.

This is delicious - the only problem I had was that I had far too much apple (maybe they were extra large?!!). I halved the recipe and two apples was ample for me.

Like it says hadn't had this in years, left out the raisins (out voted) added little grate of nutmeg, magic :-)
