Mom’s apple pie recipe aka ‘apple luuurve’

Posted by Michelle Parkin on 1 March 2012

This is one of my ultimate comfort-food-happy-place puddings. My mom has been making this apple pie since I can remember and when I lived in the UK it was, along with our family soup recipe, the meal I missed the most (okay and my dad’s amazing skaap tjoppies were sorely missed too).

Either way, I made this for my book club a few months ago and Romy has been reminding me to post it for ages … so here goes Roamster! The perfect autumn/winter pudding!

Mom’s amazing apple luuurve

  • 3 tablespoons soft butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 4 or 5 apples peeled & sliced and simmered in water & 1 teaspoon cinnamon for 5 min /1 can pie apples
  • Cinnamon


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup cream


Beat the butter and sugar until soft and fluffy. Add the eggs, mixing in one by one. Then sift in the flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt and mix this in. Add the milk and mix well. Butter a medium size oven proof glass dish and pour mixture into the dish. Pack the apples on top of the mixture and bake at 180 degrees Celsius for about 45 min.

While this is baking you can prepare the syrup:
Add all the syrup ingredients into one pot and heat over med/low heat until sugar has dissolved.
Once you take the pudding out of the oven, pour the syrup over the hot pudding and allow it slurp up the sugary goodness.
Let this cool ever so slightly and then serve with vanilla ice-cream (my fave), custard (my mom’s fave), whipped cream (my sister’s fave) or pouring cream (my dad’s fave).
