Sure, Allen...I'd love to see the recipe for the steamed pudding. I'll bet I can rig something up to steam it in.

I think a pressure cooker can be used to steam foods, such as puddings, cakes, etc. I believe I've read it in an instruction manual at one time or another.

Connie, I just made this and it is fabulous!! Cris is working late and I wanted to wait until he came home but aaaargh the applecakepower was stronger than me I couldn't resist and I had a piece... mmmmm it is sooooo goood!!
I am so happy because while I was preparing the cake my usually faithful Braun food mixer was having a cow and wouldn't function (something Cris must check out besides the cake when he gets home..) so I had to use a hammer to crush the walnuts, when something goes awry like this, it is usually a bad omen for a disasterous result... then before I put it in the oven the mixture seemed very very dry and crumbly, I wanted to check with you or kadesma but neither of you guys were online so I just had to go ahead and pray for the best, riminding myself that the apples should emit lots of juice to moisten the whole thing...
Well it came out and it was perfect, I also had to use a great deal of willpower not to touch it while it was cooling, telling myself that it would be so much better with the cream on top... (I used so much that once the cream was laid out, my will power just ran out!!)

For a note I used half/half of sugar and brown sugar, and mascarpone for the cream... the result was great!!
Thanks again Connie, I will be making this for many times over!!

I'm so glad you all enjoyed it...to get praise from my friends Kedesma and Maniac, is indeed a great compliment.
Maniac, I think your variations with the sugar and Mascarpone sounds fantastic.

I treasure recipes like this one...talk about food of love!

Bumping up because it is that getting to be that apple time of the year. We have tons of apples on the trees at the ranger station. We have 14 apple trees on the compound and the employees and public can pick as many apples as they want. So, I am always looking for different recipes using apples. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Constance.
