Malvern Pudding

OK so the Clent Hills aren't in the Malverns but we are in Worcestershire, as are the Malverns, and as we can see them from the Clent Hills so Malvern Pudding will do as a local dish for me. All the traditional recipes talk of making custard from milk and cornflower or double cream but you know what, I cant see anything wrong with a good old carton of custard. There is nothing wrong with the taste so why go to all that hassle, especially when on holiday in the van.


Apples, 1kg peeled, cored and diced. We used Bramley but you can use any.
Granulated sugar, about 50g
1x Lemon, zested
Custard, 1kg carton
Cinnamon, 1tsp
Brown Sugar, 1tbsp


1. In a frying pan or wok cook the apples with a big nob of butter for about 5 minutes or until they are soft.
2. Stir in the lemon zest, granulated sugar and cinnamon and cook for another minute.
3. Pour the apples into a dish and top with the custard.
4. Dot thin slices of butter over the top of the custard and sprinkle with brown sugar.
5. Grill for about 5 minutes or until the bubbling.


1. Squeeze the lemon juice into a bowl and coat your apple pieces immediately after chopping, its stops then turning brown.
2. In the caravan the grill is quite small so you will have to rotate the dish to grill the top evenly.
