Baked apple custard

For those times you need a sweet treat…but don’t feel too guilty, as dates, rather than sugar are used to sweeten this variation on a baked custard.


  • 2 dessert apples
  • 60ml/2 fl oz water
  • 55g/2 oz chopped dates
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 285 ml/10fl oz soya milk or milk of choice
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 30g/1 0z ground almonds
  • grated nutmeg


  • Pre-heat oven to 17o centigrade or equivalent and grease a 20-22 cm/8-9 inch flan dish
  • Peel and core the apples and cut into small pieces (discard skin). Place in a pan with water and dates, cover and simmer gently until apples and dates are soft. Allow to cool.
  • Place eggs, milk, vanilla extract and ground almonds in processor. Add apple and date mixture and process until smooth.
  • Place the mixture in flan dish and sprinkle with nutmeg. Bake in oven for aprox 30 mins until the custard is just set. Don’t over cook or custard will curdle.
