In my Blast from the Past post, I found an old picture of an attempt to make Jamie Oliver's Sheila's Pudding. I also realised that I did it really badly and resolved to have another go at it.
This time, I used a tin of unsweetened pie apples and sprinkled over some brown sugar. The pudding topping is extremely easy. Beat together 125g butter, 125g sugar, 125g flour, 2 eggs and some vanilla extract. Spread it over the fruit and then bake. Simple. (I'm still a little shaky, so simple recipes are the only things I can attempt at the moment).
It was awesome. The cakey top is a very light and tasty cake. D doesn't like apples, but he wants me to make the cake on its own for him to eat. The apples were perfectly cooked and just lightly sweetened thanks to the brown sugar. In hindsight I should have added some cinnamon or nutmeg to the apples to add some spice but there is nothing wrong with them as they are.
