Tinky’s Cozy Apple-Maple Pudding

When you pour hot cider and maple syrup on top of the cake batter, it looks awful, but they sink to the bottom of the dish and form a sweet sauce. Serve this apple-maple pudding with vanilla ice cream.

Total Time: 60
Yield: 8 servings


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/3 cup milk, divided
  • 2 cups apple slices (about 2 medium apples, peeled and cored)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh chopped ginger
  • 1 cup sweet apple cider
  • 1 cup grade B maple syrup


Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt, and set aside. In a medium bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Beat in egg. Stir in flour mixture, a third at a time, alternating with milk (beginning and ending with flour mixture).

In a medium bowl, combine apples, sugar, cinnamon, and ginger, and place in an ungreased two-quart casserole dish. Pour batter over apple mixture; make sure all apple pieces are covered.

In a medium saucepan over high heat, combine cider and maple syrup and bring to a boil, stirring often. Pour over batter; it will sink. Bake 35 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake (without hitting the liquid on the bottom) comes out clean.

    I made this last night after making a pot roast. So easy and what a delicious, simple dish! Warm from the oven with a little vanilla ice cream… comfort and joy in a bowl. A nice change of pace from pies or more involved fall desserts.

  • A delicious taste of New England! It looks like there’s too much liquid when you prepare it, but the cake absorbs it and it turns out just as pictured. My only suggestions are to add a pinch of salt to the maple-cider mix and cut back on the sugar mixed with the apples (and add a pinch of salt) to cut the sweetness just a tad.
