Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Grease a 2-litre/3½-pint ovenproof dish lightly with butter. Tip the flour, sugar and baking powder, along with a pinch of salt, into a large bowl. Mix together the milk, butter, egg and vanilla extract and stir into the dry ingredients until you get a smooth batter. Arrange the apples in the dish, spoon the batter on top and smooth with a knife until the apples are covered.
  2. For the topping, pour 250ml boiling water over the sugar and stir together until smooth. Pour the liquid over the pudding mixture, then scatter over the pecans. Bake for about 40 mins until the pudding has risen and is golden. Use a big spoon to serve the pudding, making sure you get some of the gooey caramel sauce covering the bottom of the dish. Serve with pouring cream, warm custard or vanilla ice cream.

I followed the recipe to the letter and had read all the comments so was ready for floating apples and the like, but it was an absolute scrummy success story. Even my husband, who never eats puddings, was tempted and loved it. I did add a teaspoon of cinnammon to the batter mix. Simply divine!

I thought this was going to be extremely sweet, but it wasn't....it was just delicious! I thought the tablespoon of baking powder was an error, so I just added a teaspoonful, but the sponge didn't rise very much, so next time, I'll add the full amount.
It is truly delicious, and very easy to make.

I added a heaped teaspoon of cinnamon to the batter to give it a more interesting flavour, and also mixed in some chopped stem ginger. Just made it taste a bit more rounded. Yummy though - may have been even better when reheated on the second day!

This was awesome. The cooking time seemed perfect, and it was simple to put together. I forgot to put the melted butter in and the pudding still went down a storm, making it pretty much fat free, which was a bonus. I would like to try again with the butter though as I'm sure it would make it more delicious.

A really delicious pudding when it eventually cooked, took 1&3/4 hours! I usually need to add about an extra 10 minutes on in my oven but I can't believe anyone has cooked this quantity in 40 minutes.

Very quick and easy to make put in extra apples and made in a fairly shallow 2 litre dish, was very yummy and enjoyed by the whole family will definitely be making this dish again

This is one of the most delicious and easiest puddings I have made in ages. Yes it does like there is too much liquid, but trust the recipe and it will be perfect, amazing.

Lovely. Agree that there seems to look like too much water in the sugar solution, and my apples floated to the top and the batter mixed but it still tasted lovely.

Word of warning! I line all my baking tins with greaseproof paper as a matter of habit...don't do it with this, the paper pretty much disintegrated and I spent ages picking little bits out!

Really simple to make and re heats well too. Delicious - bit like sticky toffee pudding but nicer I think as the tartness of the apples cuts through the sweetness of the sauce. Will definitely make again.

Wow this was a real surprise - it looked a complete mess when it went into the oven and actually rather good and even golden when it came out. I also gave it 10 mins more and the apple was only just soft although I had sliced it very thinly. Looking forward to trying with other fruit.

This went down a treat at a recent dinner party. I substitued walnuts for pecans because I prefer the taste, other than that stuck to the recipe. Will certainly become a regular pud in our house.

Delicious. I used bashed up granola for the topping which worked well. May add a little cinnamon to the apples next time.

Can you assemble this pudding a few hours in advance and then cook it or will that make it go soggy?

Amazing make sure butter cooled before adding ino milk as otherwise it curdles. Don't be afraid by amount of liquid!

This is very very good and very very easy. I didn't have any nuts and it was still fantastic. I really don't like it when you have to cream butter and sugar together so this was perfect for me. It was hoovered up by all ages from teens to OAPs. Thanks very much!
