French Far Breton Cake

This traditional French dessert is a true delight, made all the more luxurious with the addition of prunes in Armagnac. However, don't fret if you don't have these fancy ingredients on hand – you can easily substitute rum or skip the alcohol altogether. While Far Breton is typically made with dry pruneaux, the choice is yours whether you want to incorporate this rich and boozy element or stick to plumping your prunes in tea or water. Either way, this dessert will still be a showstopper. Imagine sinking your teeth into a velvety, custard-like filling that's studded with tender prunes, infused with the subtle notes of Armagnac. This dessert is the epitome of indulgence, combining the sweetness of the prunes with the warmth of the alcohol-infused custard. But don't worry if you're not a fan of alcohol – you can easily adapt this recipe to suit your preferences. The allure of Far Breton is not solely reliant on the prunes in Armagnac. It's the harmonious combination of flavors and the perfect balance of textures that make this dessert an absolute pleasure to enjoy. With just a few simple ingredients, such as eggs, flour, sugar, and milk, I will show you how to create a dessert that will transport your taste buds straight to the heart of Brittany. Let's create something extraordinary together.
