Gingery Eve's pudding

With a name like Eve's pudding, there has to be a couple of apples around, right? The recipe is a traditional British one with apples and a cake "hat". It's a fuss free dessert that gets done quite fast and tastes even better served with ice cream or custard. My recipe has a couple of non standard additions, nothing like a bit of spice to shake up things. So I've flavoured the sponge with a little ginger.

Here goes my recipe for Eve's pudding.

Gingery Eve's pudding

600 gm apples(I used Gala)
120 gm brown sugar
Rind and juice of 1 lime

75 gm flour
15 gm cornflour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ginger powder

120 gm butter
60 gm brown sugar
60 gm white sugar
2 eggs
1 tbsp finely diced candied ginger
50 gm almond flour
A handful of almond flakes

Peel, core and chop apples.
Mix with the brown sugar and lemon juice, tip into an 8" glass baking dish.
Spread evenly over the base of the dish.
Sift together flour, cornflour, baking powder, salt and ginger powder, keep aside.
Cream the butter and both sugars, add in 1 egg at a time and beat till light and fluffy.
Fold in the flour mixture, diced ginger and almond flour.
Scrape the batter carefully over the apples, and spread to cover the apples completely.
Scatter the almond flakes over the top of the batter.
Bake in a preheated 175°C oven for about 40-45 minutes.
Remove from the oven and allow it to rest for about 15 minutes.
Serve with cream, ice cream or custard.
