Far Breton aux Pommes/Apple Far Breton/Far Breton with Apples

Far Breton aka Breton far is a traditional cake or a dessert from Brittany region in France. This dessert ressembles almost like the popular Clafoutis, an another dessert which goes for a flan style egg and milk custard with flour. Usually dried plums aka prunes and raisins are added to this traditional Brittany region cake. However you can skip those usual prunes and raisins, by adding apple chunks. Yes you can bake this ultimate cake or dessert with apples, i just love this Apple Far Breton which i tasted long back during our summer trip to Brittany region. Far breton served in Britanny is often cooked to a much burned appearance than the recipes you can find in online, however i love mine with a golden brown top.

Far Breton aux pommes, Far breton With Apples

With simple ingredients, you can easily bake this Apple loaded Far breton with less efforts. You doesnt need any specific gadget to whisk this incredible dessert. Just a whisk is enough to prepare the flan like far breton batter which you can simply top it with chopped apple chunks. If you are using golden apples, just chop them and add to the batter, if using any other variety of apple, chop it and just toss them in butter before adding to the batter. If you are a follower of my space, you might have noticed that am running a whole month of blogging with Journey through the cuisines as theme and am posting fabulous French recipes under this theme for a month.
