Sift the flour over the surface and fold in with a metal spoon. Add enough of the milk to form a soft, dropping consistency. Spread over the apple mixture. Bake in a preheated oven at 180?C/350?F/gas mark 4 for 45 minutes until firm, well risen and the apples are cooked through.

Sprinkle with a little extra caster sugar and serve with pouring cream.d the batter over the top of the apples. Return the dish to the oven and bake for about half an hour, or until the top is golden brown.
