Tart apples and sweet maple syrup compliment each other perfectly.


  • 1 1/2 cups Granny Smith apple, peeled and chopped
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 Tbs all-purpose flour
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 Tbs unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 3 egg whites, room temperature
  • 1/4 tsp cream of tartar


  • Heat oven to 350°F. Divide apples evenly among six, 6-oz greased custard cups, reserving a few pieces for garnish. Place cups in a baking pan.
  • Mix sugar and flour in a medium bowl. Stir in egg yolks, milk, syrup, butter, and vanilla until blended; set aside.
  • Beat egg whites with cream of tartar in mixer bowl with whisk attachment on high speed until stiff but not dry; just until whites no longer slip when bowl is tilted.
  • Gently but thoroughly fold yolk mixture into whites. Pour over apples, dividing evenly among custard cups.
  • Place pan on rack in center of 350°F oven; pour very hot water into pan to within 1/2 inch of top of cups. Bake until wooden pick inserted near center comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes.
