Hazelnut and Apple Custard Cake (from TM21)
« on: February 06, 2013, 10:19:05 am »
Another of our favourites from the TM21. We used to make this on special occasions and it always disappeared in a flash! ;D
I will make it again soon so I can post a photo and make any necessay changes to the recipe :)

Hazelnut and Apple Custard Cake

Caramel Custard:
40g polenta
150g - 200g brown sugar
250ml milk
30g butter
1 egg

Blitz polenta for 10-20 seconds/speed 8. Insert butterfly. Place all ingredients in bowl. Mix for a few seconds of speed 4 until ingredients are roughly combined. Cook for 7 minutes/100 degrees/speed 2, or until custard is nice and thick. Set aside to cool. Clean bowl.

Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Grease and line and 23cm square slab cake pan, extending baking paper over the sides. Or a 22-24cm sprinform pan.

Cake
125g butter
150g caster sugar
2 eggs
300g SR flour
160g milk
3 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced (I think I only used half of my apple slices.)
100g hazelnuts (walnuts or pecans can be substituted)

1. Cream butter and sugar for 50 seconds/speed 2. I did 20 seconds/speed 4, scraped bowl and then a further 20 seconds/speed 4. Loosen from blades with spatula.
2. With machine running on speed 3, add one egg through hole in lid and beat for 10-20 seconds. Add second egg and beat for a further 30 seconds.
3. Add flour and milk in two batches, mixing each batch for 10 seconds/speed 6 or until combined.
4. Spread 2/3 of cake mixture into the prepared tin. Layer with sliced apples, pour over caramel custard and finish with remaining cake mixture.
5. Without cleaning TM bowl, place nuts inside and whizz for 15 seconds/turbo speed.
6. Sprinkle the nut crumble over top of cake and bake in oven for 1.5 hours or until cake is cooked. Leave in pan to cool.

2. Layered with apple.
3. Layered with custard.

Yum Amy! I look forward to the photo...
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

How fine is the polenta Amy? I have visions of a rather grainy custard!

Thank you all for your lovely comments!! :D :D

Judy and Brenda, a picture of a cut slice will be coming soon ;) I'm going to wait until its completely cool because I'm worried it might fall apart if I cut it while its still warm.

Katie, the kettle is on ;D ;D
