Put the margarine and grated apple into a saucepan. Heat slowly until the marg melts and the apple starts to soften. Add the honey, sugar, lemon zest and juice. Bring it slowly to boiling point, then turn off the heat.
Whilst the apple is cooking, measure out all the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl. Add the dry ingredients to the pan, and stir it until well combined.
Pack the mixture into a greased 1 pint pudding basin, pressing it down firmly with the back of a spoon. Cover with a layer of greaseproof paper or aluminium foil, tying it with string or a sturdy elastic band to prevent steam getting into the pudding.
Place the basin into a deep pan and pour in sufficient boiling water to come two thirds the way up the sides of the basin. Boil steadily for 3 hours, topping up the water level as required.
When cooked, invert the pudding into a warmed plate and serve immediately with non-dairy cream.

This margarine makes a great butter icing, not all the vegan varieties do.
Simply sieve some icing sugar into a large bowl, add a spoonful of margarine and cream together until smooth. Don't overdo the margarine as you want the mix to be firm. Can be flavoured with vanilla, cocoa powder or a flavouring of your choice. We like to dissolve some instant coffee in a tiny amount of water and add to the mix, really delicious on a chocolate cake.Reviewer's Name:

I love this 'margarine' - I'm currently enjoying it with a seed butter on rice crackers. It has a light taste and a very smooth texture which makes it versatile and well suited to savoury combinations. I have to be careful though because I find it easy to eat a lot of this!Reviewer's Name:

There's not a lot to say about this - it doesn't actually taste of anything. Has a very silky texture, spreads easily, and adds moisture to bread - but that's about it. Reviewer's Name:

A very nice spread, creamy and pleasant to eat, my one complaint would be it needs some salt. We sprinkle some on before consuming.Reviewer's Name:
