Gram’s Apple Pudding

There is nothing better or more special then a tested and true, passed down recipe!

“This dessert comes from a box of handwritten recipe cards handed-down to me from my grandmother. As the apple cake cooks, a creamy caramel sauce thickens around it, resulting in a gooey, moist, and delicious pudding. ”

Step One (Cake Batter)
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 cups Sliced Apples This works out to be 1 large or 2 small apples
  • 1/2 cup 2% Donia Farms Milk
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder Step two sauce
Step Two (Sauce)
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 2 tbsp Donia Farms Unsalted Butter
  • 2 cups Boiling Water
Step One (Cake)
  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Start by buttering a 8x8 baking pan and set aside.
  3. Construct your cake batter, mixing all step one ingredients in a large bowl until the flour is completely combined (it will resemble a sticky paste). Pour into your greased baking dish.
Step Two (Sauce)
  1. Moving to step two, combine the brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt in a small bowl and mix well. Sprinkle this evenly over your apple batter in the baking dish. Drop the butter over top in small dabs.
  2. Place the baking pan onto a rimmed baking sheet to catch over flow when baking. Pour the hot water over top of the cake, it will look weird, I know, it’s ok!
  3. Place carefully into your oven and bake for 40-50 mins. You want the top to be golden brown with the caramel sauce bubbling around the sides. Put a toothpick/knife into the middle, it should come out clean.
  4. Let it sit for at least 20 mins (if you can resist) so the sauce will cool and start to thicken up.
  5. Pull out your vintage china and serve with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!
