Caramel Apple Pudding


Here's another one of those comfort foods. Apples and almonds nestled in a warm cinnamon pudding surrounded by caramel sauce. Add a scoop of ice cream and you have the ultimate dessert.
Pudding:
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cups chopped apple (about 1/4 " size pieces)
1/2 cup slivered almonds (these add more crunch than the sliced almonds)
Sauce:
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup boiling water
In mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon.
Add milk, stir with a spoon until blended and then add apples and almonds.
Spread in a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish that you have buttered on the bottom only.
Mix sauce ingredients and stir until butter is melted.
Pour gently over pudding.
Bake at 375 degrees for 40-50 minutes or until top starts to brown. If you over bake it, you will have less sauce.
When you dish it out, you will find the caramel sauce on the bottom. Serve warm with ice cream.
To make it ahead, assemble the dry ingredients of the pudding and the sauce and set them aside until you are ready to bake it. Then add the milk to the pudding and the hot water to the sauce, assemble and bake.

  8. We fixed your Carmel Apple Pudding, tonight. We doubled the recipe (I had apples that needed to be used up) and baked it in a corning ware casserole. It turned out beautiful and was so delicious...... Definitely will be a family favorite.

    Thank you

  15. I made this cake...yummmm. I jokingly told my husband that it wasn't that good. He could tell I was lying because of the smile on my face.

    I made it again this week for a birthday party and received two thumbs up from everyone! I served it with fresh whipped cream.

    Tasty AND Delicious!

  17. I made this today for Father's Day in Australia. My family usually like a chocolate self saucing pudding but I needed a change and this was a real treat. I was astonished that it didn't taste sweet with all that sugar All my guest enjoyed, will make again soon.Thanks for sharing this very easy recipes.
