I've found a recipe for our Bonfire party pudding. Bonfire night requires warming, comforting and tasty food to stave off the cold November air and what better than a pudding made with autumn harvested apples. Add seasonal mixed dried fruits, some mixed spice and a spoonful or two of yummy, yellow custard...need I say more?
Spicy Bread and Apple Pudding
8ozs wholemeal bread, crusts removed
10fl ozs milk
grated rind of 1 lemon
grated rind of 1 orange
2 apples, peeled, cored and grated
2ozs butter, melted
2ozs soft brown sugar
2tblsp mixed spice
6ozs mixed dried fruit
Break the bread into bite sized pieces place in a bowl with the milk and soak for 30 mins.
When the bread has absorbed the milk add all the remaining ingredients and mix well to combine all the ingredients.
Lightly grease a pie dish and Place the bread and fruit mixture into a lightly greased pie dish and press down lightly, smoothing the top. Put into an oven preheated to 180C for 1 hour.
Remove from the oven and serve warm with homemade custard.
This pudding can also be eaten cold as a cake or with ice cream.
