Step by Step Methods

  • 1

    Lightly grease 4 small pudding bowls. Sprinkle 50g or 2oz of the sugar into the bowls, then pour in equal quantities of lemon juice. Peel, core and finely dice the apples. Divide them equally between the bowls.

  • 2

    Beat butter or margarine, lemon rind and eggs in a bowl. Add the remaining sugar, the flour and baking powder. Beat until well combined. Spoon the mixture over the apples, leaving space for the puddings to rise.

  • 3

    Cover bowls with greased, pleated foil. Secure with string. Arrange in a large saucepan. Add enough water to the pan to reach one third of the way up the sides of the bowls. Cove pan.

  • 4

    Steam for 40-45 minutes, or until puddings are firm. Remove foil from bowls. Run a flat-bladed knife around puddings, then turn out onto 4 plates. Spoon over syrup or honey and serve.

Tips & variations

  • If you don't have any small pudding bowls, use large, deep teacups or small ramekin dishes instead.

  • If the pan starts to dry out in step 4, add more boiling water at regulars intervals.

  • Serve the puddings with lashings of hot custard, whipped cream or crème fraiche.
