Does anyone remember this? My mother made this when I was young. I almost forgot about these. She made them with the apples that grew from the wild apple trees that were around the farm area. She would freeze them in our huge freezer full of home made foods and meat. I remeber her so clearly making these in big batches, and place in deep foil pans and would bring them out for special occasions. I didn't get her recipe but found this one. oh my does this bring back memories, smells and all! Makes me miss her so much! I will have to try making these.

How to Make Birds' Nest Pudding

Step-by-Step

  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. (This is important to do - 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.

    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.
  5. To make sweetened cream: Stir confectioners' sugar and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg into heavy cream.
