Servings: 6 servings
For the mincemeat and apple base
- 300 g apple(s) peeled and cored can be baking or eating apples
- 200 g mincemeat or use whatever you have left in the jar (within reason!)
For the sponge topping
- 100 g caster sugar
- 100 g butter I use Flora Plant Butter
- 150 ml milk I use soya milk
- 150 g gluten free self raising flour
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
- 1 tsp psyllium husk powder (optional) optional but does add structure to vegan bakes
To make the apple base
Take the peeled, cored chopped apples and either steam them in the microwave with a tablespoon of water or gently heat on the hob with a tablespoon of water. You want your apple chunks to be just softened.
Add the mincemeat, give it a good stir and set aside to cool slightly while you get on with the sponge batter.
To make the sponge batter
In a large bowl cream together the caster sugar and 'butter' until lighter in colour.
Measure the flour and add to it the flaxseed and psyllium husk.
Beat the dry ingredients into the butter and sugar.
Add the milk and beat again into a soft dropping sponge batter
To build the Eves Pudding
It's best to do this gradually, otherwise you'll end up pushing all the fruit to the side. Using two dessert spoons scoop and scrape spoonfuls of cake batter over the softened fruit as if you're adding dumplings to a casserole!
Once you've spooned all the batter into the pudding dish use one of the spoons to smooth the batter to cover the fruit.
Sprinkle the top of the sponge batter with a little caster sugar and pop into the preheated oven set at 200°C | 180°C fan | 400°F | Gas 6 for 20mins. The pudding is ready when the sponge is just turning golden and the sponge has a bounce to the touch.
