Traditional Apple Frangipane Flan

A frangipane is an almond-flavored cream, which is a main highlight of this dessert. Flans are a baked pastry with a savory or sweet filling – in this case, consisting of almond meal, ricotta, eggs, golden raisins, and lemon and orange zest (finely grated peel).

Once the filling is in the pastry and the lattice top is placed on top, brush an egg wash over it to gives a golden appearance and tender flakiness. To make an egg wash, break an egg into a bowl. If desired, add just a tiny amount of milk or water. Whisk the egg or egg mixture. Use a pastry brush to apply the wash over the pastry before placing it in the oven.

Seems like a good video. Not the best and details leave much to be desired, but that's why there's instructions for this recipe.

From its recipe video alone, it is quite unclear and so difficult to follow. I am newly wedded wife and a first time cook. I am looking for a easy and delicious recipe, but it seems your sites and recipes are for experts only!

This is my first time I've ever made something like this. The video presentation is very nice and its actually clear to understand. But maybe the admin should fix the layout so viewers will not be confused on browsing this site.

The presentation of the preparation instructions is unappealing and ugly, I don't even wanna look at it, good thing there is a video... oh wait that doesn't work either, too bad, I want to make this recipe... oh well, there are better websites out there, and I'm going to visit them right now.

When you said "Traditional", I was expecting something familiar in ANY way…then I found it so unusual from me and I am quite traditional myself. I'm not sure if it's just that I'm not familiar with this traditional flan or it really is not traditional.

I found this cake delicious. Have made this several times and it's always a great success, both visually and taste-wise.

For me, if you ask me what is the traditional taste what i love to prepare. Well I way say is “Apple Frangipane Flan". I don’t know why i always prepare this but i thing I’m sure about is that the flan have undeniable taste that everyone will love.

I think basing from the instructions and demonstration of the video, it is quite confusing. I can't follow how it is been done.

I really love how the ingredients blend in together, i love the right taste of sweetness, its sweet but its not too sweet enough for you too say yummy!
byCatya, June 20, 2012
I don't like how the ingredients blend in together, its too sweet for me and theres another taste I can't determine but I surely don't like it.

I found this cake quite delicious, but I think it is the same thing. Otherwise I wonder if you could substitute in other recipe. Let it be said I am not a good baker to begin with though. Maybe that could have been why, but after baking Apple Frangipane Flan it was VERY greasy. I had to actually drain while it was still warm, if I hadn’t have done that it would have been ruined! Not the exact recipe I want.

This rich and delicious dessert is a great alternative to apple pie for
your dinner table. This dessert will be the highlights of your celebration and I bet your guests will love this.

This Apple Frangipane flan is no exception. I brought it over to us a few weeks back to try and I’m glad that my in-laws love it. It held up perfectly. As I recall, we thought that the recipe was a little too soft for our tastes. Being that the recipe was the same as the last flan I made. We attempted to firm the crust up a little by putting it in the oven for a few minutes. Well, I did great.

I am going to make it for a Thanksgiving gathering and will add 2 apples to the almond paste. Beautiful presentation! But I thought this was mediocre. Enough almond taste, sweet enough, and Golden Delicious apples did great. It looked beautiful just as complete. I definitely like this recipe.

I’m really having a hard time looking for recipes for my son’s birthday. Until I discovered this site. I tried some recipes to know what will be the taste of it and almost all the dish I tried really taste good. He even told me to do the recipes for his birthday and this dish is one of those. Thanks for having this delightful cuisine.
