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.

this pudd is so delicious. it looks a bit odd when the boiling water and sugar liquid is added over the sponge batter, but you end up with a lovely thick sauce. fab comfort food on a cold winters night. but beware, its really moreish!!

Excellent pudding, and fear not, it is not too much water/sugar mix that you pour on to the batter and apples!

Amazing recipe, so easy to make and perfect every time - although I don't like the bitterness of cooking apples, so cook it for 40 minutes, then leave it in the oven at 130 degrees for anything up to another hour - absolute heaven. The last couple of times I've made it, I used one Bramley apple and a tin of pears - the most delicious and easy to make pudding that the whole family loves every time!!

This is a huge favourite of mine. You can add two mashed bananas to the batter for a variation too. I also tend to add a bit more water to ensure a really generous sauce. Great recipe!

Quick, easy and delicious. Used 3 apples and 10 minutes longer in the oven. The whole family loved it. Definately a 'repeater'.

This was very scrummy!! Doesnt look the prettiest in the bowl but the taste was great - approval from everyone around the table so can't ask for more than that!

I made this twice, the first time in a large dish, the second time in small ramekins. It tastes very good but I don't think it looks as good as it tastes. It is a little sweet and you have to remember that it increases in volume quite a bit so don't overfill the dishes. My family loved it, I think it would be nice for a winter lunch served hot with cream or custard.

I made this last night at a dinner party for family and friends. Like other reviewers, I felt nervous about pouring the liquid over the mix, but it was fab - looked and tasted delicious although sooo sweet, I will also increase the number of apples, and possibly reduce the quantity of sauce next time.
