This classic Breton dessert is made with either prunes or apples; we prefer the latter. After testing several recipes, we learned one secret of making far successfully: Like the Bretons, use lightly salted butter instead of the unsalted kind usually called for in pastry recipes.
2 tablespoons butter
10 1/2 tablespoons sugar
4 golden delicious apples
1 1/2 cups flour
2 cups milk
3 eggs
1/4 pound melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
Apple Far Recipe at
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a deep 10-in. or 12-in. cake pan with 2 tablespoons butter and dust with 3 tablespoons sugar.

Peel and core 4 golden delicious apples, and slice into thin rounds. Layer 3/4 of the apple slices in pan and bake until soft, about 30 minutes.

Sift 1 1/2 cups flour and 6 tablespoons sugar together into a mixing bowl, making a well in the center. Whisk in 2 cups of milk and 3 eggs, beating until batter is smooth. Stir in 1/4 a pound melted butter and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Pour batter over cooked apple slices.

Arrange remaining slices on top, sprinkle with 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar, and bake until golden and crusty around the edges, about 1 hour. (Far will puff up quite a bit as it bakes, but it will deflate once out of the oven.) Cut into wedges and serve warm from pan.

This recipe contains to much flour...way to much. 2 cups of milk and three eggs calls for 2/3 cup of flour for a custard. 1.5 cups of flour yields a paste, and it tasted like one. But hey... I made it anyway, even though I knew better, so I can't complain to much. Gotta' stop taking these internet recipes at face value!
