Apple Pudding

PicMonkey CollageOriginally, this recipe was for a Rhubarb Pudding; Marlys loved rhubarb pudding. Then, Mindy saw that it was a good basic pudding recipe and made it with apples- giving us an Apple Pudding recipe. A 9×13 product is too much for me in most cases, and so I decided it needed to be scaled down a bit; luckily it scaled perfectly. So now, we start with the smaller Apple Pudding- one that an individual going solo can eat in just a few meals, and then we show how to make it full size again for the family.

Apple Pudding

Updated to Apple Pudding by Mindy Crary)

  • 3 Apples- I found Golden Delicious to be good, but Gala, Fujii, etc will do
  • 7/8 cups flour, heaping, divided as 2 Tbs + 3/4 cup
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar or Splenda
  • 1/4 cup butter; better cut it into small pieces before it gets warm
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Peel and slice the apples. Mix with the apples, a heaping 2 Tablespoons flour and the sugar/Splenda. Put into a 6 x 9 baking pan which has been buttered or sprayed. Mix together and spread evenly on top 3/4 cup flour, the butter and the brown sugar. Bake about 1 hour or until top is bubbly.

To make a larger amount of pudding, double the recipe and use a 9 x 13 baking pan. The oven temperature and time stay the same. Remember the smaller amount of flour is used to coat the apples in the bowl, and the larger amount of flour is part of the topping.

  • 6 Apples-
  • 1 3/4 cups flour, heaping, divided as ¼ cup to coat the apples and 1 1/2 cups for the topping
  • 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar or Splenda
  • 1/2 cup butter; cut it into small pieces
  • 1 1/2 cup brown sugar

I always make it with Splenda; since the sweetener goes into the bowl with the apples to coat them, the Splenda starts to dissolve in the apple juice and the bowl is real sticky after finishing that operation. Don’t worry; enough of the sweetener got on the apples that the finished product will be good.

It is a very simple recipe and easy to make. Enjoy the pudding plain, or add a little milk/cream on the served piece. And enjoy if as an after-school snack.
