Pub Apple Custard Cake

January 29, 2013

Bar Crawling

I was inspired to make this cake after being woken up at 5am by a large group of students returning from a pub crawl.  I was seriously annoyed but it did make me think about making a cake by incorporating some flavours associated with British pubs.  Cider and custard, alcohol with traditional British home cooking.  I was unsure if this would be a match made in heaven, but those who tasted the cake seemed quite impressed with the outcome.  So much so they asked for more.  I doubt it would help calm down drunkards though.  Regardless, this one is for the pub crawlers, soak up the alcohol with a good cake.



2 egg yolks, 125g caster sugar, 70ml whole milk, 150ml double cream, 2tsps vanilla essence, 175g plain flour, 2 apples (stewed and chopped), 20ml cider, 10ml white wine vinegar, 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda, 1 tsp baking powder.


1. In a small bowl beat the egg yolks with the caster sugar.
2. In a medium pan heat up the milk and the double cream.
3. Continuously stirring and the yolk and sugar.
4. When the mixture thickens add the vanilla essence.
5. Continuously stir for 8 minutes then remove from the heat.
6. Sift the plain flour into a large bowl and add the bicarbonate of soda and baking powder.
7. Mix in the cider and white wine vinegar.
8. Add the custard mixture.
9. Beat everything together well then fold in the stewed and chopped apples.
10. Pour into a pre prepared 22inch cake tin.
11. Bake in a pre heated oven at 180 degrees C for 1 hour 10 minutes.
