Apple Custard Squares | アップル カスタード スクエア

Domestic apples are becoming out of season, apart from imported apples.

No wonder every Saturday, the vegetable store is giving away one apple per every ten dollar (one thousand yen) purchase but regardless of what it is….free giveaway becomes rather addictive and I see myself adjusting my shopping chores to get one free on Saturday.

Thus…..the fridge is stocked with apples although it’s not as great eaten fresh as it is in the winter time. I just live testing recipes when I have unplanned ingredients and I’m in my cleaning mode so here I am looking for recipes….which hopefully may turn out to be the maybe an unexpected hit recipe.

This is one is from Food 52, somehow reminiced me of ‘Irish bread puddings with apple’ served at the canteen in college when custard sauce just came with any and most all desserts. It’s very simple, organic and very European B&B (bed and breakfast) type of dessert.

そろそろ美味しい林檎の季節は終わっていますが、、

週末に通う八百屋の土曜日の特売日には1000円毎に林檎一個サービスで頂けるのです。タダって何気に嬉しいものでアッいう間に冷蔵庫には林檎がたくさんゴロゴロしているのを発見。

さぁ〜、、こうゆう時は新レシピに材料を使います。

なんか惜しげなく、いつもと違い路線でちょっと冒険できたりもします。

そうは言っても主人も食べてくれるようなものでなくてはいけないので今日はアイルランド時代、学食で良く出てくるカスタードを使ったレシピでつくってみました。

とっても素朴な田舎風のお菓子です。ヨーロッパのB&Bで出てきそうなレシピでパクパク食べれちゃいます。
