Apple Custard Recipe


  • 4 medium-sized apples (any variety you prefer)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • Optional: whipped cream or vanilla ice cream for serving


Prepare the Apples:

  • Peel, core, and thinly slice the apples.
  • In a skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the sliced apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the apples are tender and caramelized, about 8-10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

Preheat the Oven:

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a baking dish or individual ramekins with butter or cooking spray.

Make the Custard:

  • In a saucepan, heat the milk and heavy cream over medium heat until it just begins to simmer. Remove from heat.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt until well combined.
  • Slowly pour the hot milk mixture into the egg mixture, whisking constantly to prevent the eggs from scrambling.

Assemble the Custard:

  • Arrange the caramelized apple slices in the bottom of the prepared baking dish or ramekins.
  • Carefully pour the custard mixture over the apples, ensuring they are evenly covered.

Bake the Custard:

  • Place the baking dish or ramekins in a larger baking pan. Pour hot water into the larger pan until it reaches halfway up the sides of the baking dish or ramekins, creating a water bath.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until the custard is set around the edges but slightly jiggly in the center.


  • Remove the apple custard from the oven and let it cool slightly before serving.
  • Serve warm, optionally topped with whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream for extra indulgence.

Enjoy this delightful apple custard as a comforting dessert or a special treat for any occasion!
