TWD - Far Breton

This week we had two selections for TWD.  I had every intention of making the scones yesterday, but the festivities of Halloween only allowed time for one so I made the Far Breton.  I had to google to see what Far Breton meant.  This dessert comes from Brittany, France area and Far means Flour.  It is like a flan of custard with fruit.  The recipe called for prunes and raisens, but I only used raisens.

My Far Breton had a mishap.  It rose beautifully but when I took it out of the pan, it fell.  I also noticed some of the pudding had run under the parchment in my cake pan.  So I have what I am renaming as Flat Far Breton.  The taste was like a rich cakey egg custard.  Chandler loved it, I was okay with it. 

Check out Tuesdays with Dorie to see how the other bakers did with this recipe and also check out Nicole (who chose this) of Cookies On Friday and to get the recipe if you are interested in trying it.

Bummer, Peggy. But as long as it tasted good. I didn't make it cause I really don't like prunes, etc. But the scones were GREAT!!

That reminds me; I used a springform pan, and the custard dripped through the bottom onto the oven floor. Oops! My cake fell when I took it out of the oven too, but it still looked pretty tall because I baked it in a smaller pan. Oh well; at least it tasted pretty good!

I think it's going to fall when it's handled; mine definitely did, but I think I started with a smaller + taller pan for my half recipe. This one was right up our alley, flavor-wise.

Yours looks delicious with those plump raisins! I used chocolate chips which tasted strange with custard.
