Danish Peasant Girl with a Veil

This is a version of a pudding we used to make often when I was a child. We're not Danish so I don't know where we got the recipe from. Maybe the recipe itself isnt even Danish. Anyway it's called Danish Peasant Girl with a Veil and it's very yummy.

Stew chopped apples with cloves (and sugar if they're cooking apples). When soft, set aside to cool. Tear up four pieces of stale white bread into very small pieces or blitz it in a food processor. Melt about 2 tbsp of margarine in a frying pan and add the bread pieces to it. Sprinkle with plenty of brown sugar and fry on a medium heat until the bread pieces are golden brown, crispy and chewy. Layer the bread into serving dishes with the cooled stewed apple and cream, then sprinkle with chocolate chips of shavings.

I used Provamel cream here and plain chocolated chips but we used to make it with double cream and crumbled Cadbury's Flake. I think next time I'll try thick vegan cream like Soyatoo and chocolate shavings to try and get closer to those childhood puddings! Why doesn't anybody make a plain chocolate Flake? :(
