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 was EXTREMELY disappointed with this recipe. I'm quite an experienced cook so I wasn't expecting the result i had after reading the amazing reviews. I have been searching for a toffee/treacle pudding that has a gooey thick stodgy sauce or layer underneath as most of the ones I've seen haave a sauce which is quite liquid like. Thought I'd found it and have made this recipe 5 times in two days following the recipe to the tee. I love the sponge, however I was left with runny yellowy gunk with overcooked apples at the bottom and I don't classify this as toffee. I tried adding more sugar but all I got was the sugary sauce. A review said the sauce was stick, it was absolutely awful. Complete waste of ingredients

This recipe was really easy to make and tasted delicious. It took longer to cook than specifed in the method. Mine took about an hour but it was definitely worth the wait and it makes a great change to my usual repertoir of apple recipes!

I served this last Sunday after lunch and my son in law sneaked into the kitchen and scoffed what was left in the dish, a big success, don`t be scared about the amount of liquid it works out really well. Really really worth trying.

Delicious!!!! Also easy for dinner party as you can make most of it up ahead and just pour liquid on and bake when you're ready for it to go in. Yum yum

So naughty but oh so nice and moor-ish - be warned. It is what it says so if hot gooey treacley puds are your thing then this is for you. Def recommend.

Just made this for Saturday lunch with friends (4 adults, 4 kids) - loved by everyone and plenty for all (though no leftovers!) I used 3 bramley apples and I didn't think it was too sweet. Sponge still soft in the centre at the end of the cooking time so gave it an extra 10 mins.

I needed a quick winter pudding to take to a friends. This went down a treat and was fine after being warmed up an hour or 2 after having been made.

Have made this recipe quite a few times over the last 3 years. Sometimes add cinammon, but it's just as good without. Always a favourite, especially after Sunday lunch.

After reading some of the previous comments, I made this with 3 apples and used just 70g sugar in the batter. It was delicious and thoroughly enjoyed by all. Nice to have a change from apple crumble :)

If you don't do anything else this weekend make sure you make this pudding. It is gorgeous! Looks pretty messy before it is cooked but went down a storm at our Bonfire party served warm with a small helping of vanilla ice cream. Great way of using up all those apples too.

Made this last night on a cold wet dark evening.... Hmmmm proper comfort food. Added some blackberries that needed using up and only had walnuts so used them and it was very well received. Will make again for sure. Makes a nice change from crumble .

This was a fantastic hit with the whole family and friends, really easy to make. Not one bit left over! I used normal eating apples as I had nothing else to hand and it was just great. Will be making this again, a real treat!

Cooked it for about 50 minutes, but I reckon it could have done with a few more minutes, as the middle was still a bit soggy. It was way too sweet for my liking. I was not keen on the sludgy "toffee" sauce. Not a great success.

Just enjoying this with a spoonful of creme fraiche and its just gorgeous! It's soft and sweet, with the nice crunch from the nuts (I added brazil nuts instead of pistachios). This is definitely going to be one I will make again.

Took this to a bonfire party and it was a great success will definately be baking it again. Will try walnuts next time to see how that works and like the idea of adding a little cinnamon.

I made this tonight and I am kind of on the fence with it. I little to sweet for me but everyone else loved it. I used a shallow rectangular oven dish I am wondering if a round deeper one would have worked better? What did other people use? Will make again.
