I am in love with a new dessert. It’s a very easy one. However it took me a few tries to have right taste and texture.
The traditional recipe asks for black cherries. Actually the cherries have to be used with pits for an intense almond flavor. Another little tidbit to take into account is: this lovely, delicious desert can be made with pears, figs, grapes ( red and white ), berries. Lots of great variations to appeal to everyone’s tastes!
Another love of mine are berries: strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, currants, raspberries. I have to have at least one type of berry ( fresh or frozen ) at all times. It’s a must. I cannot survive without.
For this recipe I used blackberries and strawberries; fresh from the market.
- 30o g blackberries
- 200 g strawberries ( cut it in half if they are too big )
- 4 eggs
- 400 ml milk
- natural vanilla extract
- 1/2 stick of butter ( melted ) + some extra for the baking form
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 1/2 cup of all purpose flour
- 2 tbsp of chia seeds ( optional/ original recipe doesn’t ask for it )
How you do it:
Preheat the oven at 350. Butter a baking dish with butter. Sprinkle with sugar and add the fruits ( washed, drained and cut it, if needed it.) to the dish.
Lightly beat the eggs; add the sugar and whisk together until smooth. Stir in the flour.
Add the milk and vanilla extract and chia seeds. Pour into the baking dish over the fruits.
Bake for about 40 to 45 minutes until golden brown.
You can sprinkle icing sugar. We prefer it just as it is 🙂
Bon Appetite ! Enjoy !
