I’m definitely well into my Autumn inspired baking.  I’ve made some new soup recipes, a hot mulled apple drink and this comforting apple and custard cake.

The custard is baked into this cake with lovely pieces of apples, cinnamon and sultanas for the perfect autumn cake/dessert.

It seemed to be a hit with the family, my niece had a small piece and then cried for some more!  My mum tried to order one for her birthday cake – a bit premature as she was born in April.

Anyway if you love the taste of apple and custard then this cake is for you.
