  • 3 eggs
  • 175g self-raising powder
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp finger lime powder

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 3½ hours
Serves: 4-6

1 Chop half the apples and combine with the brown sugar and ¼ cup water in a saucepan, then simmer until a sauce forms. Slice the remaining apples and mix in.
2 Beat the butter and caster sugar until very light, then add the eggs one at a time. Sift the flour and spices, then fold in with the poppyseeds, add the milk and vanilla a little at a time, until smooth.
3 Pour the honey into the bottom of a well-buttered 1.5L pudding mould, then top with the apples. Spoon the batter on top, then fit the lid. Steam for 3 hours, until firm, then turn out and serve with sour cream, hibiscus and toasted macadamias.
