Good morning! Today a custard baked with apples and cranberries. This is a dessert that I love, because of its versatility, ease of preparation and the sweet taste, soft, almost childlike. Is’ a simple baked custard, in this case, enriched with apples and cranberries, but that you can customize using really any kind of fruit, winter and summer (with the exception of citrus fruits, too rich in water). In this recipe I use a very special ingredient, buffalo milk concentrate (Latterì), but I give even doses to prepare this delicious cooked cream with normal ingredients, that is, milk and cream. For some time I had discovered the burro di bufala, I use all the time, and now I'm appreciating this product that allows you to use less sugar and less starch in sweet and savory dishes brings delicacy and softness, with a unique and unmistakable flavour. In short, with or without the buffalo milk you have no excuse not to try this cake!
