My friend Jayne Gautreau told me she had fond memories of eating Eve’s Pudding, a traditional British apple dessert, as a young girl growing up in Northern Ireland. The dish, also called “Mother’s Eve Pudding,” uses a light apple mixture for the base and is topped with a sponge cake.
I enjoy trying authentic recipes from various regions around the world. I also have Irish heritage, so this recipe was one I had to try. It has become a family favorite.
As for alterations, I am allergic to wheat, as is one of my sons, so I have included instructions for a gluten-free version. I also weigh most of the dry ingredients instead of using measuring cups — this took my baking to a consistent level.
