Baked Apple Custard


  • 1 dozen large apples
  • moist sugar to taste
  • 1 small teacupful of cold water
  • grated rind of one lemon
  • 1 pint of milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 ounces of loaf sugar


Peel, cut, and core the apples; put them into a lined saucepan with the cold water, and as they heat, bruise them to a pulp; sweeten with moist sugar, and add the grated lemon-rind. When cold, put the fruit at the bottom of a pie-dish, and pour over it a custard, made with the above proportion of milk, eggs, and sugar; grate a little nutmeg over the top, place the dish in a moderate oven, and bake from 25 to 35 minutes. The above proportions will make rather a large dish.

Time: 25 to 35 minutes.

Sufficient for 6 or 7 persons.

Seasonable from July to March.
