Apple Harvest Pudding

An ideal recipe for a busy farmer’s wife with ravenous workers to feed, or for the harvest supper celebrations. This is so quick and easy to prepare but gives a lovely result. If there are any leftovers, this can be eaten cold too.

Ingredients - serves 4

2 eggs 1 teaspoon baking powder
4oz (100g) Caster sugar 1lb (450g) cooking apples
4oz (100g) Plain flour  


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4.
  2. Grease a large soufflé dish.
  3. Beat the eggs (I use an electric hand whisk), then add sugar and continue whisking until thick and light in colour.
  4. Sift the flour and baking powder together and fold into the mixture using a metal spoon.
  5. Peel, core and thinly slice the apples and fold into the prepared batter mixture.
  6. Bake for 1 hour.

It doesn’t get much easier than that.

I hope you all enjoy the various Harvest Suppers going on throughout the Parishes. A time to be thankful that we are blessed with so much and to thank the people still willing to work the land.
