we made mum a late season apple tart with brown butter custard.
browning butter makes a custard transform to a new nutty and deep flavour.
we rolled out the crust filled with sliced late season irish apples, and poured the silky custard filling on top, spread a handfull of chopped almonds and pumpkin seeds around the edge and baked to a golden brown.
not a slice was left!
happy mothers day!
(Use with nearly any recipe that calls for melted butter)
to brown butter: slice butter thinly and fry over med heat. when butter starts to froth and become nutty in aroma, with a brown color, remove from heat and add to your baking recipe.
great for muffins, scones, breads.
