Harvest apple pudding

Last weekend was Apple day at Drove Orchard, a great opportunity to taste and buy lots of varieties of apples grown in Norfolk. It was a beautiful warm day in Thornham . Perfect apple and plum picking weather.

I was interested to see the Russian musical theatre Apple ladies of Kolomna’s apple road who were performing during the day in the orchards.

I thought I would make a quick and easy no bake pudding using local Norfolk apples at their best.

Method

Pop the three types of nuts in the food processor. blitz down the nuts then add the dates.

process again until all mixed together

slowly cook down the peeled and chopped apples add a good sprinkle of cinnamon.

once the apple is cooked down, cool in fridge.

Assemble the pudding in small glass tumblers

Firstly a layer of the nut crumble mixture, press down with the back of a teaspoon

then a layer of the apple ( taste to make sure it is sweet enough for you. if not add a little honey)  It should be sweet enough if you used eating apples.

then a second layer of nut crumble

finishing with a apple layer.

chill

I served mine with clotted cream but would also be delicious with coconut yoghurt. I like Co Yo coconut yoghurt Natural flavour. just like cream Mmm.

this would make a lovely breakfast too
