- Preheat oven to 180C. Grease a 500ml pudding basin or mould with the softened butter. Mix the sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over the butter, turning so the surface is coated.
- Heat 50g of the butter with the sugar in a saucepan, add the apple, cinnamon stick and cloves. Cover and let the fruit cook for 5 minutes or until soft. Remove the cinnamon and cloves.
- Melt the rest of the butter. Cut the bread to fit the mould, then brush one side of each slice with butter before lining the mould, buttered side facing out and overlapping slightly.
- Fill with the apple and top with remaining bread, buttered side facing up. Bake for 1 hour then unmould. Sprinkle with more cinnamon sugar if desired and serve with cream.
