This is an easy pud to make and never fails to please. The batter itself is worth remembering - you can omit the sugar and use it for vegetables for a savoury nibble. Don't skip letting the batter rest for 1 hour.

250g plain flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons sugar
fruit, such as apple, banana, orange or pear, cut into pieces
Mix the flour and salt in a bowl. Make a well in the centre and add 1 egg. Mix with a bit of the flour, then add another egg. Mix again, then add 2 tablespoons of oil and sugar. Gradually add the milk. Mix until smooth and with no lumps. Set the batter aside for at least 1 hour.
Heat the oil in a deep frying pan. Coat the fruit with the batter and add into the hot oil for 3 minutes. Drain and place on kitchen paper. Dust with the icing sugar to serve.
