The Great British Pudding Challenge - Toffee Apple Pudding

The wonderful Rosie at Rosie Bakes a Peace of Cake has created a monthly event called The Great British Pudding Challenge. This event is designed to prevent the extinction of that great British institution, the pudding. Being a huge fan of puddings myself, even though I am not British and it is currently summer in Australia, I have decided to rally for the cause and participate. This month's pudding recipe is for Toffee Apple Pudding.

Toffee Apple Pudding aims to recreate in pudding form the taste of those fairground treats, toffee apples, by combining apples and golden syrup. The cubed apples are fried lightly in golden syrup and butter, and are the crowning glory of the golden syrup flavoured sponge beneath.

I served this pudding with warm custard. It is delicious, and would certainly hit the spot on a cold winter's night.

Thanks to Rosie for this month's challenge - I really enjoyed it.
