Apple meringue puddings

1 hour 15 minutes


  • 4 Bramley apples, large
  • condensed milk, 1 can
  • 3 large eggs, yolks and whites separated
  • 3 tbsp of caster sugar, plus extra for sprinkling over the apples


Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4
Peel, core and slice the apples, then add to a bowl and sprinkle with caster sugar, mixing to coat lightly
Arrange the sliced apples in the ramekins (you don't need to grease the ramekins)
Beat the condensed milk with the yolks, beating well to a smooth mixture. Pour the mixture over the apples 3/4 up the sides of the ramekins
Bake in the oven for approximately 30 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the meringue
Beat the egg whites in a clean bowl of a food mixer and beat for 5 minutes until they are nicely fluffy and stiff peaks have formed. Now slowly add the 3 tablespoons of sugar and mix until incorporated and thickened
Remove the ramekins from the oven and reduce the oven temperature to 150°C/gas mark 2. Pipe the meringues on top of the ramekins and return to the oven for a further 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve hot or cold
