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've made this several times now and it always turns out perfect and never fails to please.

This went down a treat with the adults on Hallowe'en. Absolutely delicious - I cooked it in the oven for half an hour in advance then chucked it back in for another 15 - 20 mins to finish it off when we were ready to eat. Very easy to make.

This recipe is fantastic - very easy and looks impressive as well as being v yummy. The only suggestion I have if you're trying this for the first time is to use a wide, shallow dish (I used a lasagne dish). The first time I made it I used a deep dish of the same volume and it didn't cook nearly as well. Enjoy...

Absolutely scrummy. Had to add cinnamon because I always have to have cinnamon with apple. Have got some blackberries in the freezer so can't wait to do a blackberry and apple one next time

Quite simply fabulous. Just like a great British puddings should be, oh so gooey! That toffee and pecans are best of friends is no secret, but the inspired and welcome addition of apples results in a killer combo. Simple to prepare, lush warm with lashings of cream, and equally scrummy cold with an afternoon cup of tea. Bring on the winter!

Lovely pud. Does need cooking longer than suggested though, I cooked mine for an hour and it was still a bit soft in the middle.

Devine, my partner told me it was better than apple pie! I left it sitting for about 2 hours before eating it, this allowed the sauce to thicken up. Had it with ice-cream and double cream - a real treat. I shall definately be making it again.

I made this last night, it was so easy. I added cinnamon and sultanas to the apples. It looked like a big mess when I put it in the oven but it came out perfectly after 40 minutes and was absolutely lush! Highly recommended.

I found this took way longer than the recipe said. I took it out after 1 1/4 hours and it was still not the golden risen pudding I was hoping for. Nor did I have a lovely toffee sauce, just a sludgy fudgy mix at the bottom of the dish. Tasted nice though, but not what I was expecting.

It was ho-hum. Didn't taste awful but not as great as I thought it would be. The sponge was light, there was plenty of sauce but the flavours didn't come out. It didn't seem to taste much of apple, sponge or toffee sauce. Incidently, I only baked it for 40 mins and I used hazelnuts and not pecans. It didn't scream 'make me again!' and I probably won't. This is one of a very few disappointing recipes (for me) on this excellent website.

Lovely pud, so easy and surprisingly light. I used a large shallow, oval Pyrex dish and 40 mins was just right. Will definitely make again and try the adding either cinnamon or ginger to give it a bit of extra zip.

Can this dish be made in advance and re-heated please?
