Apricot Pud

This is a delicious very simple pudding that can be made with any stewed fruit. Just stew enough fruit to cover half the bottom of a 15-20cm diameter baking dish (ceramic or glass). The key is making sure the fruit is hot when you add the topping, you can cook in advance and reheat just before cooking.
