It's easy to make this delicious vegan apple pudding and only takes 30 minutes. You'll love its sweet, cinnamon taste and crunchy crust — a great warming dessert to share.

This vegan apple pudding is sweet, warming, and filling; a perfect dessert for when it’s cold outside (or any other time). It only takes 30 minutes and uses a crust made of vegetable suet and flour to close the pudding before it’s cooked. Serve with vegan custard for a hot dessert, or cool it down with vegan nice cream, vegan cream, or vegan cool whip.

Apples are in season in the US from the end of the summer through the fall. Alternatively, a summer pudding could be made using any berries such as raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, or blueberries. Remember to try to source locally-grown, organic fruit to reduce your carbon footprint. You may also be able to find fair trade brown sugar and cinnamon for this recipe in your local grocery store.

Yield: 4 servings


  • 2 large cooking apples
  • 1 tbsp. maple syrup
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • ½ cup self-raising flour
  • ¼ cup vegetable suet (such as Atora available on Amazon**)
  • 6 tbsp. water
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar


  1. Core and peel the apples. Don’t throw away the skins; you can use the leftover apple peels again. Chop the peeled apples into thin slices. Place in a small enamel or non-stick pan with maple syrup, cinnamon, and three tbsp of water.
  2. Add the flour and vegetable suet to a medium-sized mixing bowl. Make a well in the center of the mixture and gradually add three tablespoons of water. Mix together until it forms a soft dough, adding more water if necessary.
  3. Flour your hands and a surface and knead the dough. Use a rolling pin to roll it out until about half an inch thick. Use the lid for the enamel or non-stick pan to cut a circle out of the dough.
  4. Place the dough circle over the apples and cover the pan with the lid.
  5. Cook on low heat for about twenty minutes.
  6. Remove from the heat and sprinkle with the brown sugar. Cut into four pieces. Carefully remove each piece from the pan and put in a serving bowl.
  7. Serve the apple pudding immediately with vegan custard, nice cream or whipped cream.
