Apple Black Caps
Puddings and Sweet Deserts

Apple coated in sugar and spices, baked until the sugar caramelises (Moxon 1764, Eaton 1822, etc).

Original Receipt in 'English Housewifry' by Elizabeth Moxon, 1764 (Moxon 1764)

265. To make BLACK CAPS.
Take a dozen of middling pippens and cut them in two, take out the cores and black ends, lay them with the flat side downwards, set them in the oven, and when they are about half roasted take them out, wet them over with a little rose water, and grate over them loaf sugar, pretty thick, set them into the oven again, and let them stand till they are black; when you serve them up, put them either into cream or custard, with the black side upwards, and set them at an equal distance.
