Fruit Lasagne...

Course Type: Desserts
Recipe Type: Pudding
Serves 6-8
Preparation time: 20-25 minutes
Cooking time: 45-40 minutes


2 green apples, cored, peeled and sliced
3 green pears, cored, peeled and sliced
2 peaches, peeled and sliced
3 tbsp. butter
3 tbsp. sugar
½ cup water
¼ tsp. ground nutmeg
Lasagne sheets
½ cup walnuts, finely chopped
2 tbsp. icing sugar, sifted
Custard ingredients:
2 cans x 397g Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 tsp. rosewater
1 ½ cups water
2 eggs
2 tbsp. corn flour
1 can x 170g Cream


Place the apples, pears, peaches, butter, sugar and a little water in a saucepan and cook over a medium heat, stirring frequently for 10 minutes or until the fruits are soft. Stir in the nutmeg.
Custard mixture: Mix the Sweetened Condensed Milk with rosewater and water in a saucepan and heat until the mixture simmers. Place the eggs and corn flour in a separate bowl and whisk to combine.
Add ¼ cup of the prepared Sweetened Condensed Milk mixture into the egg mixture and stir until it becomes homogeneous.
Then return this homogeneous mixture in the saucepan and cook, stirring constantly over a low heat for 4-5 minutes or until the custard thickens. Remove from heat and mix with Cream.
Spread 2 tsp. of custard over the base of a shallow ovenproof dish, then layer with lasagne sheets and fruits, and sprinkle with walnuts. Make another layer from lasagne sheets and fruits, and cover with custard and walnuts. Repeat layering.
Bake for 25 minutes. Serve hot or warm, sprinkled with icing sugar.
Tip: Do not boil the custard and egg mix, because this causes them to separate
