The secret ingredient? Jersey Royals! To find out why it works to put potatoes in a pudding, try the recipe below…

Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Cooking Time: 40 minutes

Serves: 4



  • 200g (7oz) cooked Jersey Royals, peeled
  •  2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 200ml (7fl oz) Jersey milk
  • 2 tbsp Jersey cream
  • 25g (1oz) caster sugar


  • 25g (1oz) butter
  • 1 red eating apple, cored and thinly sliced
  • 15g (1/2oz) caster sugar



  • Preheat the oven to 170°C/fan oven 150°C/Gas 3
  • Use a hand-held stick blender to blend the Jersey Royals until pureed, or use a regular blender or food processor. Otherwise use a potato ricer or potato masher to give a smooth consistency.
  • Beat together the eggs, pureed potatoes, vanilla, milk, cream and sugar. Pour into 4 ramekins or ovenproof dishes. Place them in a roasting pan and pour warm water around them, to come about halfway up the sides of the dishes. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until set.
  • Remove the dishes from the water bath and allow to cool for about 15-20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, melt the butter in a frying pan and gently fry the apple slices for about 5 minutes, turning occasionally, until lightly browned. Add the sugar and cook for another 1-2 minutes over a higher heat, until lightly caramelised. Spoon on top of the deserts, then serve.


Tip:  Make the desserts the day before you need them, keeping them covered and chilled in the fridge – though finish off with the topping shortly before serving.
