Weaning Recipe: Fruity Custard

As I mentioned before I’m really not one for cooking, I get bored if anything takes too long or uses too many utensils so this is another recipe that I absolutely love.


My phone deleted the yummy looking picture I snapped just after I’d cooked these so instead you have a rapidly scrambled from the freezer for the sole purposes of this post snap. Enjoy!


  • Custard powder
  • Full fat milk
  • Cinnamon
  • Raisins
  • Apples


Chop up your apples into sizes which your little monster can cope with (or not if you plan to whizz it up into a puree instead) and slowly stew in a pot with some cinnamon and raisins.  Once the raisins have all puffed up put this mix aside and make up some custard according to the guidelines on the tub.  My advice is to make the custard quite thick as anything too runny will just be a disaster zone when it comes to feeding time!  I speak from experience.  Once you’ve got your custard made half fill your little tubs with the apple and raisin mix, top off with custard and whack it in the freezer.

I’ve also made this with dried fruit instead of raisins, pears instead of apples and dried cranberries and blueberries.  Sometimes I’ll add a bit of nutmeg to mix it up a bit.  Our next revision will be somewhat festive with different spices, oranges and berries.  I might have some myself!

What puddings do your little ones love?
