Grate the apple over a bowl to catch any juice and add it to the mixture.

METHOD 1 Grease six pudding basins with a little oil. Put the raisins in a bowl and cover them with just-boiled water. Leave them to stand while you make the sponge mixture.

2 Put the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and ginger into bowl and mix to combine. Add all the remaining ingredients and fold everything together until you have a soft batter with a dropping consistency. Drain the raisins and add them to the bowl.

3 Divide the mixture between the pudding basins. Cover each basin with a piece of foil or baking paper, making sure you fold a pleat into the middle. Secure with string.

4 Put the puddings in a steamer over a saucepan or stand them on a trivet or a folded tea towel in the saucepan. Add just-boiled water to the lower part of the steamer or to come halfway up the sides of the puddings if they are in a saucepan.

5 Steam for 45 mins until well risen and springy to touch, checking the water doesn't boil dry. Turn out and serve with single cream and a touch of maple syrup if you like.
