Turn up the heat (in the kitchen) this winter
At Clements, we care, and whilst we know you can stay super warm in the family home with your energy efficient air conditioning this Winter, we have thought of another way to stay extra toasty. It is likely that someone will be cooking for the family each day, but as the temperatures drop, you may want to volunteer for kitchen duties. Everybody knows that when cooking is happening, the kitchen is the warmest room in the house, meaning baking is a particularly beneficial activity this Winter!
To help get you started with your Winter baking to stay warm, here is a delicious dessert recipe from Taste.com.au to try.
7-8 slices fruit brioche
60g butter, at room temperature
900g tub double thick vanilla custard
125ml (1/2 cup) milk
1 tablespoon caster sugar
1 medium green apple, thinly sliced
Icing sugar, to dust
160ml (2/3 cup) caramel sauce
Thickened cream, to serve
Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan forced. Lightly grease a 20 x 30cm baking dish. Lightly spread the slices of brioche with butter. Cut each slice into 4 triangles. Arrange half the bread in the prepared dish.
Combine the custard and milk in a bowl and pour over and around the bread. Top with the remaining bread. Sprinkle with sugar.
Arrange the apple over the top of the pudding. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the top is golden and the custard has set. Set aside to cool for 10 minutes before serving.
Dust the pudding with icing sugar and drizzle with caramel sauce. Serve with cream on the side.
Sounds amazing!! Make sure you give this one a go on a cold day, enjoy the warmth in the kitchen, and eat it hot when it’s ready.
