Pippin Apple Pudding Recipe

This is a recipe for a favourite teatime pudding. It is quite a simple dish made of apples in a shortcrust pastry pie. Apples give this dish a tart sweetness which warms the winter months

Pippin Pie Pudding

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 2 eating apples per person preferably pippins
  • 1 or 2 cloves per apple
  • Almonds
  • 1 orange to every 4 apples
  • Sultanas
  • 1 piece of cinnamon stick per apple
  • 8 oz shortcrust pastry


Pre-heat oven to 375F or Mark 5. Peel and core the apples and place them in a greased pie dish. Fill the centre of each apple with a few almonds and sultanas and a piece of cinnamon stick. Push the cloves into each apple and sprinkle over the grated rind of the orange(s).

Then, Squeeze the orange(s) and pour the juice over the apples. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pastry and cover the dish, trimming and decorating as preferred. Bake in the oven for approximately 35-40 minutes until the apples are cooked and the pastry is brown. Usually served with custard or cream. Serves 4.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
