Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 60g butter, chopped
  • 5 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, cut into wedges
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup pure cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup caster sugar
  • 1/2 teas vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup plain flour
  • 1/3 cup self-raising flour
  • 2 tbs boiling water
  • 20g butter, melted
  • double cream to serve

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180°/160°C fan-forced. Melt butter in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add half the apple to pan. Cook, turning occasionally, for 6 to 8 minutes or until apple is caramelised and tender. Transfer to a greased 3cm-deep, 16.5cm x 24cm (base) baking pan. Repeat with remaining apple
  2. Add brown sugar and cream to pan. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until sugar has dissolved and mixture has thickened slightly. Remove from heat. Pour over apple
  3. Using an electric mixer, beat eggs, sugar and vanilla in a bowl on high speed for 8 to 10 minutes or until thick and creamy. Using a large metal spoon, fold in sifted flours (see tip). Fold in boiling water and melted butter. Pour over apple mixture. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted in sponge comes out clean (cover loosely with foil if over-browning) Serve with cream

  • Ahhh, a Girl Guides recipe! My Mum used to be one of the testers for Brownies going for their cooking badge. Memories! We love a self saucing pudding (packet mix) and so I think I’d like to try this one.

  • Wish I had this recipe when we were family of 6 with extras for tea for most nights – too large now with only 2. And I’m bad at reducing the quantities and it coming up right.
