  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cup whole milk (divided into ½ cup and ¾ cup)
  • 5 -6 cored, peeled, and sliced apples
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. You will need a square baking dish (an 8x8-inch or 9x9-inch will do).

  2. Prepare soft dough by mixing together the flour, baking powder, salt, and ½ cup. whole milk in a small bowl. The dough will be quite soft, but use the least amount of flour necessary during the next step.

  3. Take half of the dough and roll it out on a surface dusted with flour till it is the size of the bottom of a square dish.

  4. Grease the bottom of the baking dish. ​Carefully transfer the rolled out dough to the dish and use your fingers to finish forming it to cover the base.

  5. Core, peel, and slice apples into water mixed with a little lime juice to prevent browning. ​Do this after you make the dough so the apples are not sitting in the water too long.

  6. Drain apples and distribute them evenly over the dough in the pan. ​Sprinkle with cinnamon and the ¾ cup sugar.

  7. Whisk together the 2 eggs and ¾ cup whole milk. Pour the egg and milk mixture over the apples.

  8. Roll out remaining dough large enough to mostly cover the apples in the pan. Carefully place the rolled out dough on top of the apples and eggs. You do not need to seal it to the edge.

  9. Bake at 400 degrees F until apples are soft and custard is set, about 45 minutes.

Apple custard certainly does sound lovely around this time of year and it's something I've never heard of before, so I was a little intrigued by the name...but I'm having a hard time trying to figure out what makes this dessert a custard. I love the rusticity of it however and that it's a cross between a pie and a cobbler. The only thing missing is some vanilla ice cream melting over the top. Yum!
