Apple Banana Custard Bake

Fruit lover? This recipe will hit the spot. It is versatile and can be made with many different fruit combos. Below is the version for apples and bananas. Read all the way to the end of the recipe for some other fruit combo ideas that work with this recipe. The basic recipe is gluten-free. This is a sinfully satisfying treat for diabetics and people with gluten sensitivity.


2 c. peeled and sliced apples and bananas (about 2 large apples and 2 bananas)
4 eggs
1 c. yogurt
¾ c. honey
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon
Dusting of nutmeg for the top


Preheat the oven to 375˚. Peel and slice the fruit. (Slice the apples thin.) Set the fruit aside. Combine all the other ingredients, except for the nutmeg. You can substitute maple syrup for the honey if you like. Use an electric mixer to blend the yogurt smoothly into the mixture (beat on high for a minute or two). Combine the fruit with the custard and mix together well.

Grease a flat baking dish or glass pie pan. Pour the fruit and custard into the baking dish and dust the top with nutmeg. Bake at 375˚ for 45 minutes or until the custard is firm when jiggled. Delicious warm or chilled.

This basic recipe works for many combinations of fruit. Try making it with pears, or peaches, or a berry mixture. Pears and pineapple pieces: yum! If you like nuts, put some pecans or chopped walnuts on top.

Eat well, be well, live deliciously!
