Apple Pudding—Steamed


  • 4 oz. apples (after peeling and coring)
  • 4 oz. breadcrumbs
  • 4 oz. finely-chopped suet
  • 4 oz. moist sugar
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ pt. milk


Chop the apples coarsely. Mix together the breadcrumbs, suet, sugar, nutmeg and salt. Add the apples. Beat the eggs. Stir in the eggs and milk, and mix well. Leave to stand for 1 hr. to allow the bread to soak. The mixture should then drop easily from the spoon. If it is too stiff, add a little more milk. Pour into a well-greased basin, cover, and steam for 2 hr. Serve with custard sauce.
