British Recipes > Norfolk Pudding

How to make Norfolk pudding:
A form of batter pudding was commonly eaten in the Eastern counties of England. A portion of the pudding was served with gravy before the main meal in order to take the edge off one's appetite so that not too much meat was eaten during the main course. Here by contrast the batter pudding was used as a dessert, being prepared with fruit and sugar.


Yorkshire pudding batter
4 medium cooking apples, peeled and sliced
2 level tablespoons sugar
2 level tablespoons lard
(see measure conversions for more information)


- Heat the fat in a shallow baking tin.
- Put the apples into the fat.
- Sprinkle with sugar and pour the batter over the apples.
- Bake in a hot oven for 30 minutes.
