Apple Pudding

Quick apple pudding with instant custard as a base, topped with stewed juicy apples.

I have had some guests over the weekend, and I made this quick and easy apple pudding. I had not planned to make this pudding, it sort of just happened!! Everybody wanted something sweet as a dessert, and since there were plenty of apples in the fruit basket, I thought of making something with them..... and when I saw the custard powder mix packet in the pantry.....I thought why not make a pudding!!

I peeled, cored, and diced the apples and added a dollop of butter in a pan and stewed the apples with sugar, little water,  and cinnamon and boy!! the whole house smelled heaven.

Some apple recipes: Rustic apple tart, Apple dump cake, Cinnamon poached apples.

Author: Nisa Homey.
Serves: 6-7.
Apples: 4 to 5 medium.
Sugar: 1/4 cup.
Water: 2-3 tbsp
Lemon juice: 1 1/2 tsp.
Butter: 1 tbsp.
Cinnamon powder: 1/2 tsp
Custard powder: 3 to 4 tbsp.
Milk: 500 ml.

I took about 5 apples.

And peeled, cored, and cubed them.

Heated a pan with a generous dollop of butter.

Dunk in the apples, sugar, and water (if the apples are very sweet, reduce a tbsp of sugar)

Add the cinnamon powder

Cook/stew the apples.....when done, switch off the fire and add in lemon juice and mix well...keep aside.

Make vanilla custard with 500 mil milk as per the directions on the cover of the custard powder. Allow it to cool to room temp. Pour it into the pudding dish.

Allow it to set in the refrigerator for 10 minutes and then take out and top it with the stewed apples. Keep back in the fridge.

Serve chilled with a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar.
