Well there’s a mouthful and I should probably have come up with something a bit snappier, but it pretty much describes this pudding. I’d just made Karen’s Orange Liqueur (shockingly back in October 2011), so I had a load of oranges minus their skin that needed using up fast. I also noticed at about the same time that some of the apples I’d been given a while ago looked like they were in need of using too. So an apple and orange pudding of some kind it had to be. Time being limited, a nice easy oaty one seemed to be in order.
This is what I did to make:
Apple, Orange Pudding with a Ginger Chocolate Crunchy Oat Topping
- Peeled, cored and sliced 5 large Cornish cooking apples.
- Layered them in a buttered ovenproof dish with 50g demerara sugar scattered amongst the apples.
- Poured over the juice of two oranges and a little water.
- Melted 75g butter in a large pan with 1 heaped tbsp golden syrup.
- Stirred in 8oz rolled oats, 1/2 tsp ground ginger and 40g chopped crystallised ginger.
- Stirred in 50g chopped 60% dark chocolate.
- Spooned this over the top of the apples.
- Baked for 30 minutes at 180C.
Thanks to Alpha Bakes for getting me to dig out this rather delicious pudding I’d completely forgotten about. I wanted to enter this month’s AlphaBakes and was hoping to make some A is for Almond macaroons, but time is running out and I’m currently on my way back from my cousin’s three day wedding in Wales. So I had a quick check through my drafts and found this A is for Apple, Orange Pudding with a Ginger and Chocolate Crunchy Oat Topping. AlphaBakes is hosted this month by Ros of The more than occasional baker and on alternate month’s by Caroline Makes.
As I had both apples and oranges in need of using up, I am entering this into the No Waste Food Challenge, which this month is fruit. Established by Kate of Turquoise Lemons, this month is hosted by Elizabeth’s Kitchen.
