Baked Apple and Custard

Soft brown sugar
Mixed Spice

(Ready made custard)


I haven't mentioned quantities in the ingredients because I have this annoying habit of not measuring things! Also - it depends how many apples you want to do! I used about a pound and a half of apples for this.

Peel the apples and slice fairly thinly.

In a frying pan gently heat 4oz butter, a couple of tablespoons of soft brown sugar, and add a generous pinch of cionnamon, the same of mixed spice and grate in about a third of a teaspoon of nutmeg.

Add the apples and a handful of sultanas and cook over a gentle heat for about seven or eight minutes, stirring to ensure all the apples are covered with the liquid.

Pour into an oven dish and bake in a moderate oven for 35 minutes.

Serve straight away and add swirls of cold custard.

If preferred you can heat the custard but I like the mixture of hot and cold in this dish.)

Any left-over can be kept in the fridge and had another day.
