Notes

*You can use Rice Malt Syrup/Honey etc instead of Maple Syrup. **You can either use red or green apples (or whatever you have in the house) ***If you love more crumble, you can easily double the crumble ingredients. ****The apple juice with the stewed apples may seem quite watery, however will caramelise and help the apples further cook when baked. *****If you are feeling super lazy, you can use tinned apple pie apples instead πŸ˜‰

Apple and Maple Custard

This is a beautiful twist on the usual custard recipe, adding apples throughout the custard. Great for when you feel like custard, but you really should eat your fruit – so why not combine the two!? This has beautiful small pieces of apple which creates a beautiful texture with the smooth creamy custard, and it pairs really well with maple syrup. This is perfect for toddlers/kids especially in reusable food pouches, or you can puree it for baby food (also this is great for older babies when introducing textures).

This is delicious with a cup of tea, and great for an after school snack!

30 Second Caramel Apple Cake

I love baking that incorporates fresh fruit…makes it ‘healthier’!! πŸ˜‰

I used a bundt tin for this as I’ve been busting to use my new bundt tin, but you could use a loaf pan, square pan, or make into cupcakes!!

You can use any type of red apples, however I used Fuji (my fave!). You can peel the skin off the apples, however I like to keep them on as it’s easier, and has that extra nutrition!

Add 2 x quartered and cored apples
Add all ingredients
Blitz 30 seconds/Speed 7
Pour into tin
Bake for 45 – 55 minutes, adjust depending on your tin size or if making cupcakes bake for approx. 20 – 25Β minutes
