I loved this pudding, especially with a helping of homemade vanilla ice cream. I used one cooking and one eating apple, as I like the texture that gives and this was so good.
Blueberry and Apple Pudding Cake (from Oak Cottage Recipes)
2 large cooking apples, peeled, cored and sliced thinly
225g fresh blueberries
140g plain flour
3 tsp baking powder
110g caster sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
85g soft light brown sugar
250ml of boiling water
Pre-heat the oven to 180C. Butter a medium sized baking dish.
Put the apples into the baking dish and toss together with the blueberries. Set aside while you make the batter.
Whisk the flour, baking powder, and caster sugar together in a bowl. Beat the buttermilk, egg and vanilla together. Stir this mixture into the flour mixture, mixing well.
Add the boiling water to the soft light brown sugar, stirring it well to dissolve the sugar.
Pour the batter over the fruit, then carefully and quickly pour the boiling water mixture into one corner of the baking dish. Bake in the oven for 45 mins, or until it is well risen and golden. Serve.
