I’ve been baking again. We’re off to visit the hubby’s family tomorrow and I thought I would take something for afternoon tea (as you do) and got to thinking… what have I got in the cupboard..??
Never mind the cupboard I have a tub of stewed apples in the fridge I am working my way through. I was going to make a pie originally, but this is better.
So out comes one of my favourite recipe books as I know exactly what I want. The Apple Crumble Custard Slice. A bit of a mouthful maybe, but definitely not too much when eating 🙂
It’s a 3-stage recipe and I stuffed up once or twice, but lesson learned I know how to fix it.
Part one is the base – flour, sugar, egg yolk and a bit of water.
Once mixed you roll it to fit the pan and then blind bake for half an hour then cool.
Part two is cooking the apples and making the custard.
Apples were already done and the custard was cream, sugar eggs and vanilla.
My mistake here was to not have the crust come up the sides of the tin and a fair bit of the custard went down the sides and underneath (making the base a bit soft once it was finished cooking).
Part three is cook til custard is half done then add the crumble topping.
(Something happened between now and a few days ago when I wrote this – but forgot to save!! Argh, so I have no idea what clever thing I wrote after the baking part. I was not in thinking frame of mind somehow…Let me have a go anyway)
Once baked, it is perfect to have as a slice for afternoon tea or served as a dessert with crea, custard or ice cream – or all three if you like, why not?!
