Apple Pecan Custard Dessert
We have an abundance of amazingly sweet and flavorful apples from our apple trees on the farm. During the fall, we can’t get enough of all the delicous apple dessert. Whether its Peanut Butter Apple Crisp, Caramel Apple Monkey Bread or our family’s all-time favorite, Salted Caramel Apples, there are a countless different ways to enjoy the perfect fall fruit. This year I decided to change things up and create a new recipe, Apple Pecan Custard Dessert, using my new Braun MultiMix, and boy oh boy was it good!
When my husband stopped in the house and asked what I was making, he turned his nose up when I said Apple Pecan Custard Dessert. “Why don’t you just make apple crisp?”, he asked. He should know the answer to that by now though. I hate making the same recipes over and over and am always trying to change things up.
Despite his skepticism, I brought him a piece of warm Apple Custard Dessert in the field with his dinner later that night. My husband is stingy with the compliments, but when he got home that night, he was fawning over how amazing it was. He exclaimed that I knocked that one out of the park and immediately begged me to make more seeing I had shared most of the dessert with family already.
The best part about this Apple Custard Dessert is that despite it having multiple layers, including a homemade streusel, it only requires one small appliance! The Braun MultiMix Hand Mixer is my favorite new addition to my kitchen. This hand mixer includes traditional stainless steel beaters as well as dough hooks that can both be stored in the convenient accessory storage bag that is included.
The hand mixer is designed with an in-line vertical motor that keeps the weight directed into the bowl, offering less stress on your hand while mixing. Along with it’s Soft Grip Plus, it keeps you comfortably in control. My absolute favorite design feature is how easy to clean it is, with no visible air vents, screw holes or seams, it makes cleanup a breeze with just a quick wipe of a washcloth!
You guys, I have been holding out on you and been saving the best part for last. Not only is it a great hand mixer, but most importantly it includes a small food processor attachment! There are so many times when I avoid a recipe because I don’t want to have to lug out my big over sized food processor. Needless to say, my old one has disappeared from my kitchen and it’s place has now been taken with the much more compact and versatile Braun MultiMix!
Whether you want to chop some nuts, whip up a quick pesto or make this streusel, this food processor attachment is a game changer. Just flip the switch on the bottom of the mixer to close the beater holes and open the food processor opening. It snaps in place and works like a charm. I have used this countless times already and the cleanup is an absolute dream!
Right now there is a 20% discount on Amazon for this Braun MultiMix, good through 11/6/18. If you are looking for the perfect gift for that baker in your life or just want to treat yourself to a new and improved appliance, be sure to snag one right away!
