Chef Bruce Wood's Apple maple pudding
This is a glorious warm winter dessert. I have also served it in the summer and mixed in one cup of fresh wild blackberries. It is best enjoyed warm from the oven with a dollop of soft whipped crème.

4 apples peeled, cored and sliced
½ tsp. cinnamon
1 cup maple syrup
3 tbsp. unsalted butter + 2 tbsp. unsalted butter for the batter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
2 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2cup dried cranberries
1 tsp. baking powder

Pre heat the oven to 375 degrees. Butter a 9 x 13 inch glass baking dish. Toss the apples with 1/2 cup of the maple sirop and the cinnamon and place in the baking dish. Beat the eggs with 2 tbsp. melted butter, the vanilla, maple sirop & lemon juice. Mix together the flour, cinnamon & baking powder. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet and fold together gently. Pour the batter over the apples. Bake the pudding for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve hot with soft whipped crème.
