Blueberry Lemon Flognarde

Blueberry Lemon Flognarde

This dessert is not a custard, like Crème Burlee or Spanish Flan but rather a fruit-filled batter like cake. Blueberry Lemon Florgnarde is considered a French dessert. As a matter of fact you can use any fruit to make this very splendidly tasteful dessert. If you wanted you could even have this dessert for breakfast. With the eggs, you have your protein and the blueberries provide the complex carbohydrate. It only has 6 tablespoons of sugar in it. Those three eggs provide 3 – 4 grams of protein per serving.

Here is what you will need:

ingredients for Blueberry Lemon Flognarde

1 tbsp. unsalted butter

6 tbsp. sugar, divided

¾ cup fresh blueberries

3 eggs

1 1/3 cups milk

2/3 cup flour

1 tbsp. freshly grated lemon zest

2 tsp. vanilla extract

1 pinch salt

½ tsp. ground cinnamon

2 tbsp. powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

preparing the pie plate for the Bluberry Lemon Flognarde

Butter a 9″ pie pan and arrange the blueberries to cover the bottom of the pie pan and sprinkle 3 tbsp. of sugar on top of the blueberries.

Next, with a grater and a fresh lemon, grate 1 tablespoon of zest. Save the rest of the lemon for another recipe. Cut it in to 4 quarters and freeze it. When you need a few spoonfuls of zest you have it in the freezer, saving time from going to the store for just one lemon. You can do the same with orange peels. I also use the zest of both the citrus peels when I make fresh ginger root tea.
