Is it a cake, is it a pudding? I’m no great shakes at baking but a few months ago I found this recipe. It sounded so easy I tried it straight away and it turned out perfectly. Yesterday, being relieved of the usual cooking duties, I did it again to share with some other Mums and it was just as nice. I’m sure Maureen of Random Distractions will be happy to share it, and if you like the look of it, I suggest you go straight over to her blog and use the ‘recipe’ or ‘cooking’ labels to find more.
The original recipe has a number of variations. Here’s how I do it.
Devonshire Apple In and Out
6oz plain flour
4oz caster sugar
1 large or 2 small eggs
1 medium bramley apple
1 oz demerara sugar
Rub the fat into the flour then add the sugar and beat in the egg. (Mixture now looks like lumpy batter). Peel the apple and slice directly into the mixture in a well-buttered pudding dish. Sprinkle with generous layer of demerara sugar. Bake at 180 (Gas Mark 4) for around 30 mins until golden.
The instructions suggest it’s a pudding and I do make it in a pyrex dish, but I leave it to go cold and find that it cuts nicely into 8 chunky slices.
Oops – only one left!

I am so glad that you liked it, Ali. We haven’t tried it cold as there is never any left over but I’ll endeavour to hide some next time! I think a cold slice with a chunk of cheese would go well in a lunch or picnic basket.
… funny you should say that. Took the photo just in time!
I have printed off this gorgeous sounding pud/cake and will be making later….thanks! And thank you for your lovely advice on my Dilemma…laugh! Hugs x
This sounds like my kind of baking. I can make a crumble without looking at a recipe (that’s as domesticated as I get) so this sounds do-able and delicious. Will give it try and let you know! Thanks for sharing. 😉
Yes, definitely in the crumble category of easiness. Think it would also be great hot with cream or icecream.
Sounds scrummy. Will definately be trying this. Thanks Alison.
Enjoy – haven’t failed with it so far – and I can’t say that about many recipes!
