Method

Prep time: 20 mins Cook time: 40 mins

Preheat the oven to 180°C, 160°C fan, gas mark 4 and grease a 2.5 litre plus ovenproof dish with butter.

In a large bowl, tip in the flour, caster sugar, baking powder and pinch of salt. In another bowl mix together the milk, butter, egg and vanilla extract. Stir this into the dry ingredients until you have a smooth batter.

Place the apples in the greased dish and pour the batter over the top and smooth with a knife until all the apples are covered.

In a jug place the dark brown sugar and pour over the boiling water and stir together until smooth. Pour this liquid over the pudding and scatter the pecans on top.

Bake in the preheated oven for around 40 minutes, until the pudding has risen and is golden.

Dish out the pudding with a large serving spoon, making sure to get some of the gooey caramel sauce at the bottom.

Serve with a big dollop of double cream, custard or vanilla ice cream.
