Apple and Orange Crunch
I like this crunchy pudding, served with proper custard sauce or, failing that, a thick pouring cream.
|3 medium cooking apples, peeled and sliced thinly|
|1/2 the zest and all the juice of 1 small orange|
|4 oz (110 g) butter|
|approximately 12 thinnish slices bread from a small brown wholemeal or white day-old loaf|
|3 oz (75 g) demerara sugar|
|Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 4, 350F (180C).|
|Need help with conversions?|
|You will also need a baking dish measuring 8 x 6 inches (20 x 15 cm), and 2 inches (5 cm) deep, well buttered.|
This recipe is taken from The Delia Collection Puddings
Melt the butter in a saucepan over a low heat. Cut the crusts off the bread slices, and, using a pastry brush, spread 6 or 7 on both sides with melted butter (reserving some for the rest).
Brush melted butter on the other slices of bread and press them on top. Sprinkle on the remaining sugar and add any melted butter that's left over.
Bake the pudding for 50-55 minutes or until the top is crisp, golden and crunchy and the apples inside are soft.

Akin to a traditional apple pie, this version is baked in individual servings. Just add plenty of cream, ice cream or custard for the ideal Sunday lunch pudding...
This traditional pudding will go down a treat after a roast lunch on Sunday - serve it with plenty of cream for the finishing touch.
Crumble has to be one of the best desserts going, and it's so quick and easy to make, especially if you use a food processor to make the topping. This is a true classic…
Click on the recipe to reveal Delia's favourite crumble topping - and a filling that would be particularly good at Christmastime, when mincemeat is definitely flavour of the month.
This is a Christmas party pud which will serve 8 people very generously; perfect for a buffet lunch. Filo or strudel pastry is wonderful for storing in the freezer as you can just take out a few sheets as and when you need them..
