Recipe for Malvern Pudding
1lb Cooking Apples
How to make the pudding:
Peel, core and slice the apples, melt ¾ oz of butter in a saucepan.
Add the sliced apples and 1oz of granulated sugar and simmer until they are stewed.
Put the stewed apples in the bottom of a dish.
Now make the custard.
First melt 1oz of butter in another saucepan, over a medium heat.
Stir in the flour and when that is mixed together with the butter, gradually add the milk.
Take the saucepan off the heat and add the remaining 1oz of granulated sugar and the egg, which needs to be beaten.
Return to the heat and keep stirring until the custard is a smooth, runny consistency.
Pour the custard over the top of the apples in the dish.
For the topping, mix the Demerara sugar and cinnamon together, then sprinkle it over the top of the custard.
Finally dot the top of the pudding with some small pieces of the remaining butter.
Place the pudding under a medium hot grill and cook until it bubbles and the sugar turns to a toffee.
Then take it out and leave it to cool.
