Custardy Apple Squares

Custardy Apple Squares is a quick and easy recipe.  Peel and slice three apples thinly.  Make a batter with flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, butter, milk, eggs, and vanilla.  Combine the batter and the apples in a square pan, bake, and 40 minutes later you have a lovely apple cake.

The recipe in Dorie Greenspan's Baking Chez Moi lists variations with pear, mango or quince and additions of rum or other liquor or almond extract.

The simple, unadorned flavor of this cake is what makes it outstanding.


  1. Your Custardy Apple Square looks perfect!

  2. Glad that you liked this one. We thought it was a bit too plain. We really enjoyed the pear tart.

  3. I agree. This is a perfect way to showcase the wonderful flavour of autumn apples. Yours looks gorgeous on that pretty plate.

  4. I agree -- it's the simplicity that makes this dessert so tasty!
