  • Divide apple between two 6-ounce ramekins or custard cups. Sprinkle apples with cinnamon and cardamom. Divide yogurt mixture between ramekins. Place ramekins in an 8x8x2-inch baking pan; place on oven rack. Pour enough hot water into the baking pan to come halfway up the sides of the ramekins.

  • Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until edges are set (centers will appear soft set). Remove ramekins from baking pan; cool on a wire rack for 1 hour. Cover with foil and chill 2 to 24 hours before serving.

  • Just before serving, let custards stand at room temperature for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, to caramelize sugar, in a small saucepan heat 1 tablespoon sugar over medium-high heat until sugar begins to melt, shaking saucepan occasionally to heat sugar evenly; do not stir. When the sugar starts to melt, reduce heat to low and cook about 2 minutes or until all sugar melts and is golden brown, stirring as needed with a wooden spoon. Quickly drizzle the caramelized sugar over custards. Serve immediately.
