A beautiful day begins with some apple sago pudding.
I woke up this morning wanting dessert. For me, that’s out of the ordinary to crave sweet as breakfast. Typically, a boiled egg and a piece of toast would do.
Though, I had been thinking about sago very much lately. I actually MISS it. I love sago. I used to have a lot of it in desserts when I was young, with coconut milk, with mung bean, in ball shaped, etc. After boba drinks came out, they immediately become my must have starchy balls.
However, I opted for sago this time. Sago is tasty in a form of pudding. Well, when sago is cooked, it clumps together like pudding. And pudding is one of my favorite desserts. It’s easy and quick to make.
Who would have thought baking sago pudding and apples is such a great combination, which truly completed my wonderful morning. It satisfied my craving. It warms my heart. It put a smile on my face.
Warm pudding and apple that comes right out of the oven is heavenly delicious.
Baked Apple Sago Pudding
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Baking Time: 45 minutes
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup sago
2 1/2 cup whole or reduced milk
1/3 cup dried raisins
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of ground nutmeg
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 medium apple, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
1 tbsp brown sugar
Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease the sides of a square ceramic baking pan. Set aside.
Place sugar, sago, milk, raisins and salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring often to avoid sago stick to the bottom of the pan and burning. After boil, reduce the heat to simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
Stir in vanilla extract, nutmeg and eggs. Pour into the prepared baking pan. Lay slices of apple and then sprinkle with brown sugar evenly on top. Bake for 45 minutes, or until set and golden brown.
It looks delicious 😀
Thanks, Lucrezia! Indeed was very delicious, especially pipping hot right from the oven with a small scoop of ice cream. It was like eating a mudslide pie without the chocolate 🙂
Mmm, I love warm apples!
Me too! I prefer hot apples, easier on my teeth 🙂
Irene, this looks delicious and refreshing 🙂
So good right out of the oven pipping hot to warm my stomach for a cold morning 🙂
Looks very delicious and the photos are wonderful.
Thanks, Scott! Sago is fun to eat 🙂
I haven’t had sago for a long while. And I have never had it as a pudding before. This is such a creative recipe
Hope all is well! Happy Chinese New Year!!! Wish you a prosperous and healthy snake year!
I love sago with coconut milk in desserts. It was the eatable pearls that I would have in my desserts and drinks before boba become popular.
Happy New Year to you and family too! May the year of the snake brings you never ending joy and happiness!
What exactly is sago? Is it just a type of pudding that you’ve mixed/baked with apples? Very interesting! Beautiful photos.
Sago are transparent little starchy pearls when they are cooked (sort of like the pearls in the milk tea drinks). They are tasteless and starchy. They could be used for various food, mainly dessert dishes that I am used to eat.
It looks so yummy 🙂 Could I have a little taste ?
Sure, dear! I love to share 🙂
Very creative and your photos are so breathtaking
You are such a sweet girl. This is such a flattering compliment. Thanks, Helen!
Beautiful photos here. By the way, I LOVE that spoon – where did you find them???
Thank you for the kind words. These spoons are adorable. They are from Sabre made in France. You might able to still get them from this site where I purchased mine.
Oh my gosh! I’ve bookmarked the website so I can browse for hours later tonight. 🙂 Thanks!! xx
