- Hey, I'm Dini Klein and this is my brand new series called Super Simple. All of my recipes are 10 ingredients or less for repurposing leftovers for the following day to come up with a brand new dish. We're doing food in a smart, efficient but really fun way. It's all super simple. I can't stand doing dishes so I've created this apple custard skillet all made in one little pan and the leftovers are gonna make a super decadent, rich drink. Can you guess what it is? Come on. We have our cast iron skillet right here. What I like to do first is take our melted butter. Yum. And just brush it and that just makes sure nothing gets to stick onto our pan. Now, let's get our ingredients in. We're gonna start in our bowl here with some wet ingredients. We have some butter. We got three eggs. You want about a half a cup or so of maple syrup. Super sticky, sweetens it nicely and gives that kind of, like, amber-y flavor. Gives this skillet really, really good texture. Little bit of cardamon in there. And I also have some vanilla extract. Let's whisk this up first to get those eggs nice and broken up and then we'll add in our dry ingredients. To this we're going to add some sugar to just sweeten it up a little bit more. We have some salt and baking powder. We have some milk here and our flour. Just throwin' it all in. I sometimes, like, can't stand baking because it's all about the process. You have to do the dry ingredients first, wet ingredients next, I have no patience for that. I like to just throw it all in a bowl, which is usually what I end up doing. Today I kinda, like, broke it down a little bit but this isn't a fussy cake that's gonna deflate on you. So you can really do what you want with it. And there's a lot of flexibility here and you can just throw all the ingredients together and mix it. It's very low-key and it's supposed to be very rustic looking. It's my kind of dessert. Oh, look at that. Looks so good. Okay. So, that's it. We're gonna take this and just pour it right into our greased pan here. And if you don't have a cast iron skillet, do not worry. You can totally use any pan that you have at home, just make sure that it's oven-proof. Alright. So I have my oven pre-heated to 350 degrees and meanwhile we're gonna get working on our apples because this is an apple skillet after all. But, again, use any fruit that you have on hand. Apples are just very seasonal. They're beautiful. They stand up well so they still like a nice little bit in the custard, which I really like. They don't totally get mushy. Alright, so now all you're gonna do is just take your apples and cut them into wedges. So I just kinda cut either side. Just gonna slice into it. This is when you get to make it look really festive and pretty. What you could do is just kinda take your apples and kinda go around the edges like this. Pretty. It's like you worked super hard on it when you didn't. Okay you guys, I'm gonna put this in the oven 350 degrees for about 35 minutes or so. It's gonna set up. I can't hold it anymore. It's getting super heavy but it's gonna be amazing and then we're gonna dust it with powdered sugar. Quick, let's go. This whole house smells like butter and cardamon spice heaven. It smells so good in here. And what's gonna it really festive and really fun is the snow that we're gonna just lay on here. Oh snap. Alright, let's serve this guy up. All you're gonna do is just cut yourself a nice little wedge of it or you could go super rustic and just put, like, a spoon in it and just scoop it out. But we'll serve it just like this for today. Oh my God. That's gorgeous. And let's douse it with a little bit more powdered sugar just because I have way too much fun doing this. Keep going, keep going, keep going. I love it. It's just so fun. And that's it. There you have it. My apple custard skillet. So delicious. It's creamy. It's custard like. It's really simple to throw together, it's kind of a joke and you can use it with any seasonal fruit you have in your fridge. But, as usual, we have a second repurpose for the next day. If you have any leftovers of this, which you won't, but if you do, throw it into your blender, add some ice cream of choice, some milk, top it with your favorite whipped cream and cardamon and mmm. There you go. Apple custard milkshake and regular apple custard. Either way you want it, both fabulous options. Super simple. Bye guys.
