Apple pudding

Recipe from Joany Tim

Serves 8

Apples and cinnamon are comforting flavours, especially in winter. Swop your custard or ice cream for plain low-fat yoghurt.

Ingredients

4 medium Granny Smith apples, seeds removed and cut in wedges

1 cinnamon stick

¼ cup (60 ml) sugar

3 eggs, beaten

3 tbsp (45 ml) sunflower oil

¾ cup (180 ml) low-fat or fat-free milk

½ cup (125 ml) plain low-fat yoghurt

1 cup (250 ml) cake flour

½ cup (125 ml) wholewheat flour

2 tsp (10 ml) baking powder

2 tsp (10 ml) ground cinnamon

Syrup

½ cup (125 ml) low-fat or fat-free milk

½ cup (125 ml) water

¼ cup (60 ml) sugar

1 cinnamon stick (optional)

Method

  1. Place apples with 2 tbsp of water and the cinnamon in a pot. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 3-5 minutes or until just tender, but not mushy.
  2. Preheat oven to 180 °C. Beat sugar and eggs until well blended. Add oil, milk and yoghurt and mix well.
  3. Combine the flours, baking powder and half the cinnamon in a mixing bowl.
  4. Beat liquid into the flour mixture to form a smooth batter.
  5. Spoon apples into an oven dish and pour batter on top.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown and cooked.
  7. Syrup: Meanwhile, place all the ingredients in a small pot and stir over a low heat.
  8. Simmer for a few minutes or until slightly thickened.
  9. Prick warm pudding with a fork or skewer and pour syrup over. Sprinkle with the rest of the ground cinnamon. Serve warm with plain low-fat or fat-free yoghurt.

Tip

  1. Make the pudding with fresh pears as above. Or use a tin of pie apples or peach slices and leave out step 1.
