make it: Late night Apple Sponge

We're not pudding people.. we eat dinner then might enjoy a piece of chocolate with tea before bed.. Last night however we needed PUD!



This time of year is amazing.. We inherited with our house a cooking apple tree that produces the best fruit each year.. therefor my apple based puddings are seriously up to scratch.. we love crumple, strudel and pie - but the boys favourite is apple sponge..

So last night I made this for us: Late night Apple Sponge for 2


2 x Apples peeled, cored + cubed
a little butter
splash of water (roughly 2 x tablespoons)
1 x flat tablespoon of caster sugar
1/2 tea spoon of cinnamon
a little lemon juice
and a star anise.. if you like it!

melt butter then mix all together and cook over a medium heat for 10-15 mins till most of the cubes are broken up. Add a little extra water if looking too dry.

All in one Sponge - for 2..
1 x egg - weigh this and it will give you the weight for the rest of the ingredients - same if you were using 2/3 eggs.. mine came in at 58g
58g caster sugar
58g flour (I used plain with a little baking powder 1/2 teaspoon)
58g butter
lemon zest

wiz till pale and fully mixed.

I then just poured it onto the apples rustic style - I used the milk pan I cooked the apples in - I normally decant into a pretty cook dish if serving to friends!

Cook 180 for 15/20 mins until cake is slightly golden and the mix comes out clean if you stick a knife in sponge..

serve with ice cream, custard or cream.

delish!

on a Bathroom update: So close now!!! We've worked SO hard this week - Tiles are laid and floor is down.. Grouting tonight and then finishing touches over the weekend - the boy has a plan to make the bath panels so I'm not sure when these will get done.. but hopefully by the end of the weekend I'll be able to shower again YAY!
