Apple Cake


I really want a slice of apple cake with vanilla custard. I want it right now. It is pouring with rain outside and it is the perfect weather for apple cake and custard and a cup of hot coffee.
there is none of this left,
it takes 90mins to bake
and I am all out of apples.
Salivating over this photo will have to do.
The recipe is from the Monday Morning Cooking Club cookbook so it is not mine to share but if you can get hold of it you should. It is truly delicious.

Duyvken Vanilla Custard
3 tbsp flour,
500ml milk,
100g sugar,
60g butter and
1 vanilla bean
6 yolks

MethodEggs and sugar, cream together
Incorporate flour
Warm milk in a saucepan, add the scraped vanilla bean and incorporate slowly into the egg, sugar and flour mixture
Bring to bubble, whisk all the time, cook 1 or 2 mins to thicken
Turn off heat, whisk in butter
Allow to cool to desired temperature

This is so perfect, I need a 6 egg yolk custard when I've made a 6 egg white pav!
