It's getting colder and this calls for comfort food.
Stewed apples are a regular staple for me.
You can use them in so many ways and in so many dishes.
Simple, cheap and oh so warming!
Last week I ended up concocting what shall now be named as...
APPLE AND CUSTARD BREAD PUDDING
1-2 Cooking Apples
1-2 slices of Bread
1tsp Mixed Spice
1tsp Vanilla Essence
Sugar or preferred Sweetener to taste
1. Heat the oven to 200°C.
2. Peel and chop the apple into small chunks. Place in a bowl and microwave on high for 4 minutes. Mush the apples with a fork and add some sugar and cinnamon.
You can leave them slightly chunky or continue to microwave until desired consistency.
Pour the apples into a small oven-proof baking dish.
3. Slice the broad into small cubes and place in the microwave for 30 seconds. Once warm and soft then add some sugar, cinnamon, mixed spice and vanilla essence to the bread and mix.
Sprinkle the bread on top of the apples into the baking dish.
4. Pour the custard on top of the apples and bread and then season more with spices/sugar if desired.
Place the baking dish into the oven and cook for 10-15 minutes or until the custard is bubbling.
