One of the easiest puddings to make and one of the most memorable to eat. Try using a variety of apples to give a subtle twist to this dish.

Serves 4-6

6 large apples (Braeburn, Pacific beauty or Granny Smiths) finely sliced
200g unsalted butter
140g raisins
100g soft brown sugar
Pinch of cinnamon
4 eggs
200g self-raising flour

Heat oven to 170degC.

Peel, core and slice the apples. Grease a large serving dish, about 2.5-litre, with 25g of the butter and tip in the apple. Scatter the raisins over the top.

In a separate dish beat the remaining butter, sugar and cinnamon together for 10 minutes until the butter turns pale and the sugar starts to dissolve. Beat in the eggs, then carefully fold in the flour with a large spoon. Spread the batter over the apples, bake for 45 minutes until golden.

Serve with custard and/or good quality vanilla ice cream.

Alison Lambert, chef at the Otago Farmers Market, will be demonstrating this recipe at the market on Saturday morning.
