Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a 2 quart baking dish.
  2. Place apples in prepared dish. Stuff the core of each apple with brown sugar, pressing down slightly. Reserve any remaining sugar. Sprinkle all the apples with the 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg. Place dish in preheated oven to start baking while the batter is prepared.
  3. Beat egg whites until stiff. In a separate bowl, beat yolks until they change color. Stir milk and maple flavoring into beaten yolks. In a third bowl, combine flour, cream of tartar, baking powder, salt and any remaining brown sugar until well mixed. Pour flour mixture all at once into egg yolk mixture and stir until smooth. Fold beaten egg whites into yolk batter.
  4. Remove apples from oven and pour batter evenly over and around apples.
  5. Bake in preheated oven 45 to 60 minutes more, until crust has browned. Turn each apple, surrounded by some fluffy crust onto a plate and serve at once with sweetened cream.
  6. To make sweetened cream: Stir confectioners' sugar and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg into heavy cream.

A fun, tasty recipe! I used small apples, and the pudding batter rose up nearly to the top of them as it baked. I used whipping cream because there was no milk in the fridge- way more fat and calories, but it sure did taste amazing! I mixed the nutmeg and some cinnamon into the brown sugar, and added a scoop of flax (to make them "healthy" after all that cream!) The pudding part is like a bread pudding without the bread cubes- it's sliceable and soft. Don't forget to START THE APPLES BAKING WHILE YOU ARE MAKING THE PUDDING BATTER! I missed that step in the directions, and it will make a difference, as mine took longer than an hour to bake- I had to cover it with foil to keep the pudding part from getting too browned while the apples softened. I will make this again- especially when we are reading (and re-reading) Little House books!
