This is the easiest pudding you’ll ever make – a no-fuss base of sweet and juicy spiced apples is topped with just a handful of ingredients that magically transform into a spongy cake-like topping. Delicious!
Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas 6. Peel, core and chop the apples, then put them in a frying pan (preferably ovenproof) with 50g sugar, the cinnamon for warmth and 2 tbsp of water in a cast iron ovenproof dish or frying pan with 50g of the brown sugar, cinnamon and 2 tablespoons of water.
Cook for 5 minutes, or until the apples start to soften. Leave the apples in the pan if it’s ovenproof; if not, tip them into a baking dish. Drizzle over the caramel sauce for sweetness.
Mix together the flour, baking powder and remaining sugar and scatter the mixture over the top of the apples. Pour over the melted butter, ensuring it soaks up all the pockets of flour.
Transfer to the oven and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until bubbling and golden. Remove from the oven and let rest for 5-10 minutes before serving with a scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream.
