Warm apple pudding (cake)

I’m not a fan of pudding in general, but this is really just a moist apple cake and consequently I loved it. I got the recipe in my recent Aussie Farmers Direct delivery – gotta love food that comes with recipes attached ūüôā

60g / 2 oz butter
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup self raising flour
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/3 cup buttermilk ( if you don’t have any on hand just add 1 teaspoon of white vinegar to 1/3 cup of milk and leave to stand for 10 mins)
2 apples, peeled. One grated and one thinly sliced
10g / 1/3oz butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Beat butter, sugar and egg for 5 mins
Stir in flour, ginger, buttermilk and grated apple until just combined
Pour into a greased ring pan ( I didn’t have one so used a baba pan)Top with apple slices

Bake at 180c /350f for 30 mins or until cooked through
Leave to cool for a few mins the. Top with melted butter and cinnamon

What my children will eat

#1 child (the picky eater) will eat :

– plain pasta with cheese or butter or homemade mac’n’cheese

– plain chicken, meat or pork (sometimes he’ll eat it if its got sauce/spices on it but not usually)

– rice (but just a little bit)

– potatoes (but not the skin and not if they are too crunchy)

– fruit (melon, grapes, strawberries (just !), pineapple, apple, banana, pear, canned peaches and pears)

– vegetables (peas, corn, broccoli, cauliflower)

– salad (cucumber and lettuce, sometimes)

– dairy (cheese, yoghurt – plan vanilla or strawberry with no bits in it)

– drinks – apple juice, milk and water but nothing with “bubbles”

– doesn’t like any kind of lollies other than snakes and chocolate

– likes ice-cream and is now trying new flavours, but prefers chocolate or vanilla

 

Child #2 (who is obsessed with food) will eat almost anything. He’ll always try new foods and loves salad stuff – raw carrot, capsicum, cucumber – and fruit. He’s a big fan of anything in the squash family (pumpkin, butternut squash etc) and loves pasta (but he’ll eat the tomato pasta sauce too). He likes curry and spicy food (he’ll say “this is spicy” but then keep on eating. There are very few things he doesn’t like. He will drink almost anything (including sour stuff like grapefruit juice and soft drinks). Likes the bright coloured ice cream, like bubblegum flavour.
