Time: 1 hour

Sufficient for 5 or 6 persons

  1. 5 moderate-sized apples
  2. 2 tablespoonfuls of finely-chopped suet
  3. 3 eggs
  4. 3 tablespoonfuls of flour
  5. 1 pint of milk
  6. a little grated nutmeg
  7. loaf sugar
  • Mix the flour to a smooth batter with the milk
  • Add the eggs, which should be well whisked, and put this batter into a well-buttered pie-dish
  • Wipe the apples clean, but do not pare them; cut them in halves, and take out the cores
  • Lay them in the batter, rind uppermost
  • Shake the suet on the top, over which, also grate a little nutmeg
  • Bake in a moderate oven for an hour, and cover, when served, with sifted loaf sugar

  • This pudding is also very good with the apples pared, sliced, and mixed with the batter.
