Re-hydrated Apple Pudding
I put dried apple slices in a wide 1 litre pyrex jug up to approx 650ml line and covered in boiling water up to c. 1 litre line. Cover and leave for at least 1hour.
Scoop out apple slices into the bowl of a food processor and reserve liquid. Whiz apples into a rough purée.
Add 1.5 tsps of cinnamon and 1tsp nutmeg and approx 2tblsps of roasted hazlenuts. Whiz again.
Add in 10oz Self-raising flour, 5 oz demerara sugar, 5 tblsps sunflower oil and 2 eggs. Whiz until mixed.
Add in sufficient of reserved apple liquid to make a fairly loose batter (I used approximately 250ml).
Once thoroughly mixed to a loose batter add in about 3oz sultanas. Whiz once or twice to combine then spoon into pre-lined loaf tin.
Bake Gas Mark 4 for approx 1 hr and 15 minutes until skewer comes out clean.
