Eve's pudding for a crowd
Feed a crowd with this classic nursery Ever's pudding. Cook it in two large deep roasting tins if you don't have a big enough dish.
Preheat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4.
Grease a very large ovenproof serving dish with 125g/4oz of the butter then scatter in the apple slices. Sprinkle over 150g/5½oz of the brown sugar, the golden syrup, cinnamon and finally the raisins.
In a mixing bowl, beat together the remaining butter and sugar in a large mixer (or with a wooden spoon) until pale and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then use a large metal spoon to gently fold in the flour.
Spoon the batter over the apples and gently even out with the back of the spoon.
Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until golden-brown and cooked through. Serve with custard.
