Last night I made Apple Pudding from the Betty Crocker book. It was really amazing.
When I saw pudding, I immediately think "Jello-pudding", but this was more old-fashioned, almost like bread pudding.
There was only a handful of ingredients and at first I thought the mixture would be too dry, but I had to let it sit while I greased the pan and it got moist on it's own. I do think that adding more apples than are in the recipe is a good idea.
Once it's baked, it's like a cross between apple pie and coffee cake with the best of both--no crust to worry about and lots of soft, warm apple goodness.
For presentation, a dollop of whipped cream or cream and a drizzle of carmel sauce makes a laid-back, easy dessert company ready.
Quick, easy, inexpensive comfort food.
