💡 Expert Tips

Use any apple or apple varieties you like. I prefer red delicious as it is sweet. You can omit the sugar from the apple layer it is to your taste. Make it vegan and use non dairy milk. Chill in the fridge if you want it cold, eat warm in cold days or just enjoy it in room temperature. Use other fruits instead of apples, pears are great in this recipe too. You can alternate milk and apple pudding layers to make more layers instead of just two.

👩‍🏫 My Experience

Fall is the most wonderful season in Colorado, colorful trees, crisp air and.. lots and lots of apples. In Egypt though, Fall meant school starting with the smell of guava and raw unripe dates- like the Barhi dates or those red crunchy sweet dates- fill the air, so it is no wonder I did not like Fall back then and I did not share mom her love for guava or red dates :).

Apple is a summer fruit in Egypt not a Fall one so this dessert is usually eaten chilled from the fridge but for our convenience and due to the fact that temperatures started to drop- some days dramatically- here in Colorado, we’ve enjoyed it at room temperature, but between me and you I like it warm or even hot straight from the stove but watch out for your tongue :).
