This is an awesome custard recipe from Brandi


3/4 tsp baking powder
3.75 Oz AP flour
1/2 vanilla bean
2 large eggs
1/4 tsp kosher salt
6 Oz sugar
1 lbs 2 Oz chopped apples
4 Oz unsalted melted butter 
3 TBSP apple cider
Unrefined sugar for sprinkling

[NB:1 Oz= 28.35g]

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter an 8-inch springform cake pan and line it with parchment paper. Sprinkle unrefined sugar on the sides of the pan and tap it around
  2. Whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl
  3.  In a medium bowl, beat the eggs with a whisk until they’re foamy. Rub the vanilla bean seeds into the sugar and add to the eggs. Blend well
  4.   Whisk in the apple cider, half the flour blend well
  5. Add half the melted butter and the remaining flour and butter. Mix gently after each addition so that you have a smooth, rather thick batter. 
  6. Fold in the apples, so that it’s coated with batter. Scrape the mixture into the pan and poke it around a little with the spatula so that it’s even. Sprinkle the top of the cake with unrefined sugar. 
  7. Slide the pan into the oven and bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until the top of the cake is golden brown and a knife inserted deep into the center comes out clean. Transfer to a cooling rack and let rest for 30 minutes.
  8.  Wait until the cake is cooled, then carefully remove the cake from the pan & serve it.
