Serves: 6
  • 2 cups stewed apple
  • ¼ cup sultanas
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • ⅓ cup honey
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ⅓ cup cornmeal or polenta
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup low-fat cow or soy milk
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 165°C. Organise a 6 cup ceramic or pyrex baking dish to bake the pudding in.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix together the stewed apple, sultanas, egg, honey, cinnamon, ginger and vanilla essence. Stir well to combine then set aside.
  3. In a heavy based saucepan, combine the cornmeal, water, milk and salt. Mix well.
  4. Bring the cornmeal to the boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly.
  5. Turn heat down to medium and cook for 10 minutes until thick and smooth, stirring every few minutes to prevent the polenta from sticking to the bottom.
  6. Remove from the heat. Carefully pour in the reserved apple mixture and stir to combine.
  7. Pour into the prepared baking dish. Bake for 50 minutes, until browned on top.
  8. Serve warm with yoghurt.
