Eve’s Pudding

A GRAND TOUR OF THE UK & IRELAND – baked goods from region to region

This month, we invite you to try a modern-day take on an old favourite, Eve’s Pudding! The first known recipe dates back to 1824 during the reign of Prince William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland. As third and youngest son of King George II, he held the position from 1726 and is best known for his role in putting down the Jacobite rising at the Battle of Culloden in 1746, which helped making him immensely popular in parts of Britain. Our recipe is made using IREKS CREME CAKE and IREKS PREMIUM CUSTARD. The traditional pudding contains sweet sliced apples, which are included in the bottom of the sponge cake. After baking, you can glaze it with warm apricot jam.
