Recipe: Apricot Sponge Pudding

Apricot Sponge Pudding

This recipe comes from Toni Imms who lives in Australia.  In my Baking with Coconut Flour e-book newsletter I ask my subscribers to share their recipe conversions.  Toni has given permission for me to share her recipe and she believes this recipe is originally from England. Toni says:

“The recipe is a family favourite and they like the coconut flour version just as much as the wheat one.”

I have to admit I’ve never eaten anything with the name “sponge” in it before, and I’m not really sure how this is supposed to taste.  I find it to be very much like peach cobbler and would make an excellent substitution in my opinion. It was so delicious, it impressed my son who normally doesn’t care for my “healthy” desserts so much that he asked for a piece to take home. That’s quite a compliment!

Toni’s converted recipe was not quite GAPS legal so I have taken her recipe one step further and it is now GAPS friendly.  Check yesterday’s post to find the topping I used, which was Apricot Ice Cream.

I’ll share the GAPS legal version, but I’ll also share Toni’s version in case you would like to try hers as well.  Please use an 8″ square casserole dish for my version of the recipe (Toni’s calls for a 7″ dish but I didn’t have one).

Apricot Sponge Pudding

  5. Lastly add vinegar and mix well

  • This is off topic. :) I was wondering how you were doing! I know you were working on mercury detox, and was wondering how it was going. By the way, I started a blog if you want to follow along on my health adventures. http://www.familyhomehealth.blogspot.com.

    Hi Kristie!! I am actually doing pretty good. I had to stop chelating in August when my mom came to live with us and haven’t been able to get back to it. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to any time soon. I’ll hop over and take a look at your blog, thanks for sharing!! :-)
