I’m a little (okay, a lot) late with this week’s post (well, last week’s). I finally managed to make this Breton classic today. My version was gluten-free and wasn’t bad. I skipped the raisins, doubled down on the prunes, and added Emmentaler (after reading Mardi and Betsy’s exchange on the French Fridays site). The cheese was a good addition. I ate it with a salmon cake and some greens, but I think the leftovers are going to be treated in a more brunch-like fashion.
Will I finish it? Yes. Will I make it again? Probably not, unless it wows Kevin when he tries it tomorrow.
Next Tuesday, I’ll tell you about what December has in store for folks around here. But before that, I’ll see you for French (Toast) Friday.

Glad you finally got around to making this and that my suggestion was helpful!
It was, but I don’t think I’ll be making this one again. On to the tuiles!
A great idea adding the cheese. I skipped this recipe. Looking forward to your post on the French Toast.
I think this one was skippable, unfortunately. I’ll be posting about the French toast with this week’s tuiles. It was great!
LOL, at least you tried it !! 🙂 I’m going to add cheese to ours once I get to making it! 🙂
It’s true! My partner has a phrase, “I’m a better person for having tried this.” I think I’ll try the sweet version of a far some time. I’m guessing I’ll like it better.
Hi Teresa! What flour did you use? I made mine w/oat…usually works well for me, esp. with breakfast-y stuff.
I used an all-purpose mix we get from the bulk section of our food co-op, topped up with a little brown rice flour. It seemed to work pretty well. I have to get some oat flour – it would be a nice addition to my store of g-f flours.
It sounds like adding cheese was the way to go, but it also doesn’t sound like many of us are going to be making this one again. Oh well, it was worth a try. Your salmon cake looks delicious. Is it homemade?
It’s not homemade – we buy them at our local food co-op and they’re wonderful. They’re from Queen Charlotte Seafoods http://www.qcseafoods.com/
You were a good sport to try this one…and glad it didn’t disappoint 🙂 Have a great weekend!
You, too, Liz!
I’m glad our suggestions helped, some. Unfortunately, I liked the leftovers less than the original. Oh well, everything is worth trying once. You never know…
It’s a good philosophy – I might try a sweet far some time. I’m expecting to like it better.
Yes, I think the cheese would have been helpful. I am glad I tried it, but not so sure it will get a repeat here either. (Maybe with sweet potatoes if there is a next time)
Have a great weekend.
I wonder if the sweet potatoes would help it? I’ll be curious to see the results if you do try it.
