Custardy Apple Squares

One of our two baking assignments this month for Tuesdays with Dorie are these Custardy Apple Squares. I decided to make these first as part of our Rosh Hashanah dinner. 

This simple cake came together quickly. I used my food processor to thinly slice three apples as I did not have a mandoline. The ingredients include flour, baking powder, eggs, sugar, vanilla, whole milk and butter. After the batter is made the apples are gently coated then put in an 8-inch square pan and baked.

I had my piece with just a dusting of powdered sugar but the rest of the family opted for ice cream. The reviews were that it tasted like noodle kugel and since we had noodle kugel for dinner I am not sure I made the right dessert. I enjoyed the apple flavor but some thought it was too plain. I probably should have added one of the Bonne Idees.

Tuesdays with Dorie is an international baking group working our way through Dorie’s cookbooks. We do not publish the recipes instead we encourage you to buy the book. To see what others made this week head over to Tuesdays with Dorie.

    We thought it was good but a little plain as well.

    It looks perfectly delicious but I agree it is a plain dessert, not for a gathering probably. I loved it though!

    I love how easy this one was. It's too bad that it didn't pair well with your meal, though.
