Apple Flan From Piedmont
Timballo di mele
In this apple flan from Piedmont delicate apple flavours get topped by a crunchy caramel topping.
At this time of year I wrack my recipes for anything apple and came across this timbale in Marcella Hazan’s Marcella Cucina. It is not unlike my previous apple pudding, but what makes this dessert remarkable is the lack of flour and fat along with the addition of caramel. Classic flavours in a – for me – new disguise, so of course I had to try it.
It won’t be the last time, as it turned out really nice. Especially when left for 24 hours, so that the caramel gets a chance to melt into a sweet sauce.
