Really Easy Dessert Recipe – Custard Tower

This is my favorite dessert. I have been making it since I was a kid and it has always got great reviews. The best part is it is extremely simple to make and still it is like the perfect dessert after every meal. I realized it when I made it for my bro’s birthday party (as an add-on dish) and the guys asked for more 🙂 I mean it is so simple that I did not even expect it to be liked in the first place. To clarify, I was in school at that time and cooking was not one of my best skills….he he he. Be sure to get compliments every time you make it.

Preparation Time – 20 mins

Servings – 6 people

Ingredients

½ litre milk

2 tblsp custard powder

1 tsp cocoa powder

½ cup sugar

2 packets Marie biscuits

Prepare chocolate custard using milk, custard powder, sugar and cocoa powder. Keep the consistency thickish. Let it cool a little. Now take a Marie biscuit, dip it in custard and place it on a plate. Take another biscuit, dip it and stack it on the previous biscuit. Make stacks of 6 custard dipped biscuits. Pour the remaining custard on top of the stacks. Place the plate in the freezer for 3-4 hours. When serving, cut each stack neatly into four parts. Please each part in the serving bowl so that the inside of the biscuit faces upward.

 

Tip: Custard Tower is best served cold. Replace the remaining stacks in the freezer.

Apple Crisp – Slow Cooker Recipe

This is an exotic dessert recipe that is absolutely the easiest also. You can close your eyes and make it. Absolutely nothing can go wrong with it and the guests will love it.

Preparation Time – 1 hour

Servings – 6 people

Ingredients

3 apples (preferably Washington)                       

1 ½ cup refined flour (maida)                                     

1 cup toasted oats

1 ½ cup plain white sugar

1 tblsp cinnamon powder

1 tblsp nutmeg powder

1/3 cup unsalted butter/ghee

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

Peel and core the apples and cut them into slices. Add ½ cup plain white sugar, ½ cup flour, cinnamon powder and nutmeg powder and mix. The flour is added to soak up the apple juice that oozes out while baking. Grease a baking dish and spread the apple mix in it evenly. In a separate bowl, mix the remaining flour, oats, remaining sugar, baking soda and baking powder. Add the unsalted butter and mix with your hands till the mixture is all crumbly. Spread this crumbly mixture on the apples in the baking dish. Pre-heat the cooker for 5 minutes and put in the baking dish. Bake for 40 – 45 minutes.

 

Tip: Serve hot scoops of apple crisp with dollops of Vanilla ice-cream. Garnish with chocolate sauce. Brown sugar can also be used in the oat mix instead of white one. You can also add nuts to the oat mix before baking.
