Spiced Apple Pudding - Gluten Free

Last weekend I was asked to make a pudding for Sunday dinner. I received requests for cake, Eve Pudding and apple pie. This is how my Spiced Apple Pudding came along. I decided to combine all of the above to create a pudding to please everyone.

When creating a recipe I love to have a rummage though the cupboards to see what needs using up. This time I found a jar of cranberry mincemeat left from Christmas. Apple and mincemeat goes hand in hand. The flavours combine together perfectly. Topped with a spiced sponge this makes a delicious pudding.

This is what I did...

Spiced Apple Pudding


For the fruit base:

1kg Bramley Apples, peeled and chopped
1 410g jar of cranberry mincemeat
1 tbsp caster sugar

For the spiced sponge:

100g gluten free self raising flour or regular
1/16 tsp xanthan gum (only if using gluten free flour)
100g baking spread
100g caster sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp mixed spice


Heat the oven to 180c

1 - Place the chopped apples and the the caster sugar in a pan and heat over a medium heat for 10 minutes or until the apple is just starting to break down

2 - While the apple is cooking make the sponge batter by placing the flour, sugar, spread, eggs and mixed spice in a bowl and mix until you have a smooth mixture

3 - Once the apples are cooked remove from the heat, add the mincemeat and mix together

4 - Using either individual glass ramekins or an oven proof bowl spoon in the apples and mincemeat so that it reaches a third of the way up the bowl or ramekin

5 - Top with the sponge mixture up to the second third of the bowl, you will need to save a third of the bowl or ramekin free to allow the sponge to rise

6 - Bake in the centre of the pre heated oven for 25 - 30 minutes or until the sponge is thoroughly baked

7 - Remove from the oven and leave for 10 minutes before serving as the fruit base will be extremely hot!

This pudding is delicious as it is or why not add a scoop of ice cream or custard! 

There are so many possibilities with this pudding. If you do not like mincemeat or do not have any simply add some dried mixed fruit with some cinnamon and nutmeg.
