Rustic Apple Custard Cake

Rustic Apple Custard Cake | Plaid & PaleoI’m in the two week countdown!! Fourteen short days from now I will be boarding a plane to hop across the pond to my European excursion. I can’t believe it is so close. I’m getting down to the gritty details like what to pack. I’m hopeless! I have no clue how I’m going to pack a month worth of clothes in one bag. Any tips for packing? I’m a serial overpacker. I don’t think that is a word but anyways. Shoe suggestions? Necessities? Things worth leaving behind?

I’m not sure if I am more nervous about traveling Europe without knowing anyone or leaving my blog. It may sound silly but this blog is like my little baby. I put a ton of time and effort into blogging. I love my readers and my blog! When people comment and say they love a recipe of mine, I legitimately freak out! You can’t wipe the smile off my face for hours. I’m a big nerd at heart and little things can make my day. While I am super nervous to leave my blog for a month, I have posts ready to go! I might be a little slower to respond to emails and comments, but I will be checking in.

So I’m not sure if the title suits this recipe or not. I thought it was more of a bread pudding while my family convinced me it was more custard. I decided why not merge it together and call it an apple custard cake. It is the best of both worlds! If you love bread pudding, this custard is for you! If you love custard, this cake is for you! I just love any apple dessert.
