Apple and Cinnamon Custard Bars

A good Custard is always welcome - especially when baked and teamed up with Cinnamon Apple, you have a delicious quick, anytime sweet treat or dessert. These Apple and Cinnamon Custard Bars are one of our favorite week night desserts.

I left the Apple skin on and liked it that way, but my hubby and son reckoned it would have been better without. I suppose that is a personal choice.

You can slice these into rectangular bars or squares and they hold shape perfectly, so it is ideal as a party snack which is easy to add to a finger-dessert platter. The size you slice them into are also to your own preference, but I have found if I serve these to my family for dessert, 9 squares are just fine.

Should you prefer to add the Custard Bars to a sweet party platter, I'd recommend slicing them into smaller bite-sized bars, which would give you around 15 servings.

I have set the Servings in the recipe to 12 portions as that is easy to slice especially if the Apple skin is not peeled.

The base consists of a Custard flavored cake with a thin Custard filling and topped with sliced Apple, sprinkled with Sugar and Cinnamon, which comes together nicely once baked.

NOTE: If you prefer a thicker Custard layer, simply double the Custard part of the recipe.
