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.

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
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.
