It is very important to have very hot fruit when you put the sponge topping on the fruit as it helps it rise and cook quickly.

If you like more fruit, then double the amount of apple and feijoa.  Sooooo yummy.

    I used the sponge part of this recipe for an apple spong I made.  I added an egg, missing from the ingredients list, and used GF flour for my coeliac husband.  Worked really well.

    This looks so good. Sponge top puddings are aneasy and economical dessert for winter, so its good to see how to make the sponge topping using a thermomix.
