Apple Custard Pudding

Recipe#8 from Mrs.K.M.Mathews recipe series.
A delicious dessert which is not too high in calories!

Ingredients :

  1. Apple, cut into 1/2 inch cubes - 1/4 kg
  2. Water - 1 cup
  3. Cinnamon - 6 x 1 inch pieces
  4. Lemon juice - 1 tbs
  5. Water -  1 cup
  6. Sugar - 1 cup
  7. Salt - 2 pinches
  8. Grated lemon zest - 1/4 tsp
  9. Yellow color - 2 drops (optional)
  10. Butter - 1 tbs
  11. All purpose flour - 4 tbs
  12. Milk -  1 cup
  13. Lemon juice - 2 tbs


  1. Cook apples in 1 cup water, cinnamon and lemon juice till apples are cooked well.
  2. Mash half of the apple in the above
  3. Boil 1 cup water, sugar, color and lemon zest and pass it through a fine mesh
  4. Heat butter and flour in a pan and mix well in low flame. Take care not to burn  flour (flour color shouldn't change)
  5. Once the flour-butter mixture cools, add milk to it and mix well. ( i have used a whisk for mixing) There shouldn't be any lumps. Pass it through fine mesh to remove any lumps formed
  6. Add sugar syrup to the apple mixture and bring it to boil
  7. Add milk mixture to the boiling apple mixture
  8. As the mixture thickens, add lemon juice to it and thicken it again
  9. Butter a baking bowl and move the pudding mixture in room temperature to it
  10. Preheat oven to 300F Deg
  11. In a larger oven pan add water and place the pudding bowl in it
  12. Move the pan to oven and bake for 40 minutes
Above pudding can be served warm or cold.
Garnish suggestions given in the book is to use ghee fried bread crouton and bread crumbs on the pudding top or roasted coconut and cherry garnish

I have used raspberry and brown sugar for garnish. The original recipe calls for lime juice instead of lemon juice. And i didn't use food color in the pudding. Next time i will try this pudding with mixed fruits instead of just apple :)
