Grandma Woods' Apple Pudding

Marsha Gardner


Not really a pudding in the sense that we know pudding in this country. This recipe is from my English grandmother. In Great Britain all desserts are called puddings. I think that is why it is called Apple Pudding. Another name I have seen this recipe called by is Apple Macaroon, whatever you call it, it is wonderful served in the English way with some cream poured over. Or as my husband and his family like it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
