Why I Love This Recipe

This is a very old family recipe that I have made many times over the years and is a favourite with the family and friends. It is simple to make and so nice on a cold Winters night.

Ingredients You'll Need

4ozs self raising Flour
2ozs sugar
pinch salt
1 egg
2ozs butter
4 to 5 tablespoons milk
1 lb stewed Apples or other fruit


Stew the fruit and place in an ovenproof dish.

Sift Flour and salt.

Cream butter and sugar, add egg and beat in well.

Mix in sifted ingredients alternately with milk. Place the mixture on the warm fruit and Bake in a MODERATE oven for 25 to 30 minutes.

Dredge with sugar and serve hot with custard or cream.
