Apple pudding (great finger food)
Ever woke up one morning wishing you had made breakfast the night before so that you can enjoy 5 more minutes of sleep in bed? Or maybe 10 minutes?
Yeah, of course you did.
Even more so when you have a small child to take care of and feed some proper food to.

Now this apple pudding comes just in handy. It’s soooo easy to make; however you’ll have to leave the oven on for a good hour. If that puts you off from making it, then think about those extra 10 minutes of sleep the next day. Okay? Cool.

Pudding…well, you could say it’s actually a PANCAKE because the batter surely resembles that of a pancake, slightly on the thicker side. And since I mentioned here that I do not like to fry stuff for my baby, then it made perfect sense for me to find a way to bake stuff rather than fry.
Because it has cinnamon and apple, it might just be the perfect recipe for fall, or for my next Halloween roundup.
The end result is a bit soft on the inside, but that’s perfectly fine. It doesn’t mean it’s not cooked. The apples, or any fruit for that matter, retain their juice, making it a bit on the wet side.
And when you take it out of the oven, it looks so brown and yummy, you’ll want to show it off on social media (just link to me, ‘kay?).
My husband wanted to eat the whole thing, even though there is no added sugar. The apples bring enough sweetness and the fact that he enjoyed it was surprising. As for Emma, she enjoyed eating it a couple of mornings in a row and sometimes for dessert.
It keeps well in the fridge, in an air tight container. Serve with a glass of milk if baby is over 1.
What are the goodies in it? So we have fruits (the apples), protein (the egg), dairy (the milk) and starch (the flour). There you have it! Four food groups covered in one go!
Let me know in the comments down below how your little ones enjoyed it (or not; babies are SO different). Also, sharing is caring, especially for us busy moms so make sure to spread the word on social media!
