Toffee Apple / Caramel Apple Pudding Recipe by | #toffee #apple #caramel #pudding #fall

This Toffee Apple Pudding, also known as Caramel Apple Pudding, is rich, packed with apples, and is the perfect after-dinner treat. Enjoy with custard, ice cream, pouring cream, or simply by itself– whatever topping you chose, this pudding will become your new fall favourite.

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes



  • 85g (6 tbsp) unsalted butter, melted
  • 140g (1¼ cup) self-raising flour, sifted
  • 100g (½ cup) golden caster (superfine) sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • 200ml (7oz) milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large Bramley apples, peeled, cored and sliced


  • 140g dark brown sugar
  • 250ml (1 cup) boiling water


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4. Grease a 2-litre/3½-pint ovenproof dish lightly with butter, set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, add the flour, sugar, baking powder, and a pinch of salt.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the milk, melted butter, egg and vanilla extract, then stir into the dry ingredients until you get a smooth batter.
  4. Arrange the apples in the greased ovenproof dishes and spoon the batter over the apples, smoothing the batter into the edges and ensuring the apples are covered.
  5. For the caramel topping, pour the boiling water over the brown sugar, stirring until the sugar has dissolved, then pour this syrup over the pudding batter. It will seem like a lot, and also looks like it’s making the pudding mixture watery– this is OK.
  6. Optional: Add a handful of nuts of your choice over the batter, if required.
  7. Bake for 40 minutes, or until the pudding is risen, and/or golden brown.
  8. Remove from the oven and serve immediately, making sure you get some of the gooey caramel sauce covering the bottom of the dish, with pouring cream, custard, ice cream, or by itself.
  9. Store leftovers in the ovenproof dish covering with plastic wrap or foil for a day or two.


  • If you don’t have any self-raising flour, use plain/all-purpose flour and increase the baking power by adding an additional 2 tsp (so 1 tbsp + 2 tsp in total).
  • Use the largest apples you can find to make this pudding extra fruity.

    This was delicious. Cooked it for the first time tonight for my family and everyone said how nice it was and my mum took the recipe. I cooked the apples for 5-10 mins before to soften them. Also ,only had 125g of dark brown sugar and sweetness was fine still. Thanks for the recipe 😊

    don't be tempted to put it back in the oven!!!!!!!!! I didn't think it quite looked cooked so put it back in for an extra few minutes and solidified the sauce. tried it again without the extra time and it was perfect.

    Self-raising flour plus 1T baking powder. Is that correct?

    1. Lisa | Sweet 2 Eat Baking October 10, 2023 @10:06 pm Reply

      Hi Sharon, yes, that’s correct. It’s because it’s a self-saucing pudding, so needs the baking powder in addition to the self-raising flour. I hope that helps? Happy baking. 😊
