Chocolate Eve’s Pudding is perfect to bake on these dark wintery nights – create a warm cosy feeling while it’s baking away in the oven for a couple of hours.

Trisha cooks hers over a wood burner stove during the winter months – with the combination of apples/pears and golden syrup we can only imagine the divine smell that must have been wafting throughout her home. Enjoy!
