Long Description to add
This lovely traditional Christmas pudding is a good bet for those who don't like the richness of a traditional plum pudding, yet still want the elements of it - steaming, apples, raisins - in their Christmas Day dessert.
This is quite definitely a dessert cake. The combination of spices, the hint of orange and the balance of tart apples and cake are perfect. It needs a large dollop of crème fraiche or whipped cream to go with it.
It is so simple to make proper custard, not only does it taste better than anything ready made it freezes well too.
A traditional English pudding, and a perfect partner is Delia's recipe for Proper Custard, see related recipe below
This recipe is adapted from Delia's Happy Christmas, but it's too good to only have once a year...
In the winter it works really well with passion fruit
This wonderful pie is the perfect end to a traditional Sunday lunch, just serve with custard, ice-cream or chilled pouring cream
