custardy apple squares

This Custardy Apple Square recipe is one I’ve actually made a few times now…maybe three or four.  It was the first recipe I tried out when I got Baking Chez Moi and it’s so simple and tasty that it went right on the “make again” list.  Apple slices tossed in a quick batter that’s whisked by hand get layered in a baking dish.  It goes into the oven kind of a hodgepodge but comes out a stack of beautifully soft apples with a bit of vanilla (and rum, in my case) custard holding them together.  A mandolin makes quick work out of neat, thin apple slices (and of course adds a thrilling element of danger to baking prep–watch your fingers!).  This also reminds me quite a bit of something called Bolzano Apple Cake that I posted about many years ago.  It’s great with whipped cream, but just fine on it’s own.

For the recipe, see Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll!

P.S.: Thanks so much for all the kind comments on my last Baking With Julia post! xoxo

  1. Wow Steph! Your apple square looks perfect with the sliced shingled so nicely. And also delicious.

  2. Your layers are just perfect. Mine are not so perfect, but I loved the taste of this simple dessert.

  3. beautiful! It almost looked like a layered crepe cake to me for a second, but the fact that it’s apples is even better 🙂

  4. Yours is the prettiest version I have seen by far!!

  5. I enjoyed your post of the Bolzano cake. I still have not made Marie Helene’s cake. So many desserts, so little time. I can’t believe we have been cooking this current book for 2 years already.

  6. You have such perfectly stacked layers – beautiful!

  7. I really have to try this one!
