  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 cooked this for a work "bring a dish" event and for last years family christmas dinner. This afters seems to taste even better a day or two later (not sure why though!) - so if its not all eaten on day one - keep it!

Lovely, a very unusual recipe,,couldnt believe that you made a batter then poured the sugar water over it but it worked! I added cinnamon to the batter and flaked almonds on the top..that was all I was delicious

Can walnuts be used instead of pecans? As I have an abundance of them from my Ma-in-Law's garden!! Jo.T

Delicious. The mixture looked very runny before putting in the oven which worried me but it turned out perfect.

Made this pud with apples from mum's tree and it was a massive hit. Everyone loved it from the elders to the little ones especially delish served with Kelly's Cornish ice cream. Definitely five stars and easy to boot. And to scoff.

Very easy and quick to make and very yummy! Tastes more-ish! I served with ice-cream! Will definitely make that one again!

An absolutely delicious pudding and really easy to make. I followed it to the letter, wouldn't change anything and will definitely be making it again and again. Great for using up the apples from our tree, but not so good for the waist line!!
