Golden Apple Puddin'

Hi.
Thought you might like this delicious recipe and it is one my three boys love.

GOLDEN APPLE PUDD'N

1 cup plain flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
4 dessertspoon butter
6 dessertspoons milk
4 Golden Delicious apples (if you do not have these you can substitute)
Little finely grated lemon peel

Sift dry ingredients, rub in butter until crumb texture then add milk to make a soft dough.
Roll dough out into a rectangle then spread with grated apple (unpeeled if you like) and sprinkle with a little cinnamon.
Roll up like a swiss roll and cut into pinwheels.
Place in a pie dish and pour over boiling syrup of:
    3 tablespoons butter
    ½ cup water
    2 tablespoons Golden syrup
    4 Tablespoons sugar

Bake in a moderate oven for 15-20 minutes.

Best served with vanilla ice-cream to soothe the burns form eating it too
fast!

The mixture sounds like too little for four to six people, but it is quite rich and one pinwheel with ice-cream each is probably enough. The dough expands very quickly in the oven. Don't let it stand or the syrup is soaked into the dough and you lose the flaky pastry with the sharp sauce effect.

*I like mine very saucy so have also doubled the sauce mixture*

Bye for now
I'm just off to get some nice golden delicious apples.

Re: Golden Apple Puddin'

That sounds very delicious!

I assume any tart apple would work, wouldn't it?

And... how much is a dessert spoon? Is it the same as a tea spoon? Let me know and I will try the recipe some time wink

Re: Golden Apple Puddin'

A dessertspoon is halfway between a teaspoon and a table spoon, about 10ml.

Hi Susanne

In Australia Golden Delicious apples are a yellow coloured apple but they are not usually tart, like the Granny Smith that we use here for cooking, & you can just eat them as an apple.  I usually use whatever apples I have on hand though whether it be a cooking apple or eating apple.  I dont think it would make a difference, just alter the flavour to whatever apple you used but am sure each taste sensation would be equally delicious.
Spoon measurements are generally 1 teaspoon - 5 mls, 1 dessertspoon - 10 mls & 1 tablespoon - 20 ml.
Hope this helps. smile

Braeburn are the most delicious apples I have ever tasted. Don't get them much here in Adelaide unfortunately. I love them.

Re: Golden Apple Puddin'

I like Breaburn apples  thumbsup .

I am not keen on Golden delicios apples as I don't realy like their texture.

My husband favours... Pink Ladies..( apples!!)
most of my family enjoy the crispness of Granny Smiths
I favour coxes orange pipin Apples, Breaburns and Russets,
Russets are not very common (,an old fashioned apple variety)

Re: Golden Apple Puddin'

You don't get breaburn in Oz? I think they ship them over here form New Zealand.....  This globalization thing gets me....
I like them best too because they are sweet AND tart, crisp and juicy. Golden are not mine. Grannys mostly for their color (I think they are too bland compared to a breaburn). Never tried Pink Lady or Cox (though they are available). What are they like?
Boskoop for baking. Had a wonderful fuji once and only awful ones ever since. 

Best ones were from my Granddad's orchard - he had several kinds - delcious every single one! Unfortunately all the trees came down long ago when my grandparents felt they were getting too old. But some of these old fashioned varieties are sooooo good!!!! wink Unfortunately most of the apples ended up as apple sauce - and somehow I never cared for grandma's apple sauce much (I am not sure why - too much water I think)

Re: Golden Apple Puddin'

Pink ladies are fairly sweet and reasonably juicy with a delicate flavour.

If you shake a coxes Orange Pipin apple near your ear you can hear a few seeds rattle, coxes have a slightly denser texture than some other apples.

My father also had some very old apple verieties in his garden, your right , they were the best, eaten stright from the tree . yummy
