  • cup milk 80ml
  • 1 teaspoon gelatin
  • 4 teaspoon maple syrup 20ml (1tbsp + 1tsp)
  • cup cream 80ml, I used heavy/double but can use lighter
  • cup unsweetened applesauce 80ml
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla essence


  • Put milk in a small pan and add gelatin. Leave approx 5min to 'bloom' - you will see it form a layer on top then this thins out as it dissolves.
  • Meanwhile lightly oil 2 ramekins/custard dishes (4-6oz size).
  • Gently warm the milk and ensure the gelatin dissolves, around 3-4min - test by putting a spoon in and seeing if you can see any lumps, there should be none.
  • Remove from the heat and add the remaining ingredients and whisk to combine. The cinnamon may seem to float on the top - don't worry just try to combine as best you can.
  • Pour into the ramekins/custard dishes and chill for at least 2hrs, 4+ or overnight if you want to remove from dishes.
  • To remove from the dish, if you want to, sit the dish in a bowl of hot water for a minute then ease the top edge away with a knife before inverting on a plate (if the plate is damp, you can slide it to reposition if you need to).
