An apple cake, probably created by Marc-Antoine Carême (Careme), and named in honour of Queen Charlotte (1744-1818), the consort of George 111. A large mould or individual moulds are lined with fingers of buttered bread. The centre is then filled with a stewed apple mixture this being covered by a fitted piece of buttered bread. The whole is the baked in the oven so all the bread becomes golden coloured. The pudding is then turned out and generally served with cream.
