  • 1 lb / 500g Bramley Apples or a mix with dessert apples peeled and sliced
  • 2 - 4 slices white or wholemeal bread depending on size
  • 50 g castor sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 knobs of butter or margarine about 25g/1 oz
  • 4 tsp soft light brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • Cinnamon for dusting


  • Pre-heat the oven to 180°C.
  • Place the prepared apple slices into a pan and pour over the lemon juice and 1 tbsp water.
  • Stew under a lid for 4-5 minutes on a moderate heat until soft.
  • While the apples are cooking use a ramekin as a template to cut 4 circles from the sliced bread.
  • Butter the bread circles, dust generously with cinnamon and spread a tsp of brown sugar on each.
  • Cut the circles into quarters.
  • Stir the caster sugar and vanilla extract into the apples once cooked.
  • Divide the stewed apples between 4 ramekins.
  • Then lay the bread quarters over the apples in a circle so that the last quarter is tucked under the first.
  • Place the puddings on a baking tray in the middle of the oven for 15 minutes until the tops go crispy.
  • Let the puddings cool down for at least five minutes before serving as they will be extremely hot inside!
  • Serve with cream if wished.
