  • 125g (4oz) raisins
  • 3 apples, peeled and chopped
  • 380g (13½oz) flour
  • 8g (⅓oz) vanilla sugar
  • 20g (⅔oz) baking powder
  • 250ml (1 cup) milk
  • 2 eggs


  1. In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients until everything is well incorporated.
  2. Place the batter in a greased pudding steamer and place the lid on the top. If you don’t have a lid, cover the container with a sheet of buttered foil. Press it around the bowl with the fold on top. Tie the foil tightly around the bowl using a long piece of string.
  3. Place the pudding into the steamer set over a saucepan of simmering water, or use a large saucepan with a saucer in the bottom.
  4. Cook for 2 hours.
  5. Serve with sugar and melted butter.
