Jammy tamarillo and apple pudding



1.Preheat oven to 180°C.
2.In a small to medium ovenproof dish, combine the fruit with water, brown sugar and cinnamon. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until piping hot.
3.While the fruit heats, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then beat in the egg. Stir in the dry ingredients and mix until it forms a smooth batter. Dollop the sponge mixture over the fruit and bake for 30 minutes or until the sponge is cooked through.
4.Serve with vanilla ice cream or cream.

Heating the fruit first ensures the sponge cooks relatively quickly and doesn’t go soggy.
