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.
