Apple Pudding

This warm apple pudding with a hint of cinnamon and nutmeg is topped with sweetened cream and drizzled with caramel sauce. It’s as cozy as a fall sweater.

Apple Pudding-5312 When it comes to dessert, I am picky about the calories. I save them for brownies and warm chocolate chip cookies, but there are some seasonal desserts that I look forward to each year that are definitely worth making and eating. This apple pudding is my absolute favorite for fall. In the winter, I make molten chocolate cake, in the spring I make these lemon bars, in the summer I make blueberry bars and every fall I look forward to this apple pudding. This year we  used apples from our tree, so it made it even more delicious.

I admit that it is a bit cumbersome to peel, remove the seeds and grate the apples: give yourself 15 minutes, turn on your favorite song and grate away. I like to use my food processor grating blade that which makes it a bit easier.
