Note For this pudding, chef Richard Corrigan uses heirloom apples, such as Bramleys; unfortunately these are difficult to find in Australia, so we’ve used Granny Smiths instead.

This recipe is from the June 2012 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

“I had the most delicious apple pudding at Corrigan’s in Mayfair when I visited London last month. Would you please print the recipe?”
Lara Melrose, Gold Coast, Qld
