Apple Pudding with Butterscotch Sauce

We love apples. The kids eat apples like mad. They love the idea of picking the fruits right from the trees and eat them straight away. We don't use any pesticide so we don't worry about eating them fresh from the trees.

Now it's Winter, there's no more apples growing on the trees, except stripped branches and twigs. Still, we can eat apples, locally grown. And they taste as good.

Here's now the time to make hot pudding that we can enjoy straight from the cups or ramekins. Donna Hay has that kind of recipe, that's where I adapted this recipe from. This pudding is light, nutty, and sweet at the same time. You need apples only to line the cups. I use tea cups to bake the pudding and they went out of the oven fine. No cracks, whatsoever.

The thing about slicing the apples, I only use my little knife which I sharpen it at times during slicing. The sharper it is, the thinnest slices I would get. However, there are not really at the same thickness like I expect them to be. As I discovered later, to line the cups, you have to be able to slice the apples as thin as a paper, then you can get great liners, crisp and neat.

Anyway, I'm quite happy with the first attempt and will try that again obviously.

2 red apples, thinly sliced,
1 ½ Tbs caster (superfine) sugar,
20g (¾ oz) unsalted butter, melted

Place the sliced apples, sugar, and melted butter in a bowl, and toss to coat.

125g (4 ½ oz) unsalted butter, softened,
1 cup (175g / 6 ¼ oz) brown sugar,

1 cup (150g / 5 ¼ oz) self-raising flour, sifted,
½ cup (55g / 2 oz) almond meal (ground almonds),
¼ cup (2 fl oz) milk,
(single or pouring) cream to serve

Preheated the oven to 170C—was not mentioned on the recipes). Line 6 x 1 cup (8 fl oz) capacity ovenproof cups with apple. Beat the butter and sugar until light and creamy for 8-10 minutes. Gradually add in egg, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Fold in the flour, almond meal, and milk. Spoon the mixture into the cups and place on a baking tray. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer. Turn out onto plates and serve with the butterscotch sauce and cream. Makes 6.

Bahasa Indonesia

Yang suka apel yang suka apeeelll. Puding ini bisa dibuat dengan menggunakan apel merah, meskipun kudu diperhatikan tekstur kepadatan apel itu sendiri. Harus dipilih apel yang benar-benar segar supaya kalau diiris tipis, irisannya tetap bagus. Selamat mencoba ya!
