This unusual dessert provides a good excuse to bring out the
stove-to-table ware. It came from the back of a packet of prunes, many
years ago, and has been adapted for fatfree cooking.
1 large cooking apple (would work fine with a dessert apple)
1 250-gram packet of ready-to-eat prunes
4 Tbsp sugar
1 cup water
1 tsp lemon juice
3/4 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup skimmed milk, or substitute
2 Tbsp apple sauce
1 Tbsp sugar
Take a a pan that can go from stove to table; I have an 8-inch diameter
enamelled steel casserole that works well.
Peel, core, and slice the apple. Place it in the pan with the prunes,
sugar, water, and lemon juice. Bring it to a boil.
While it is heating, sift the flour with baking powder and salt, then stir
in the milk and apple sauce. Drop the mixture by teaspoonfuls onto the hot
fruit, then sprinkle with the remaining tablespoonful of sugar.
Cover the pan and simmer for 15 mins. Serve hot.
