Autumn is apple-season, so I’m using them in as many recipes as I can. Today I want to share something with you that’s a little different. I’m making a rice flan with apples! I’m hoping you’ll like it, because I absolutely adore this recipe!
What you’ll need:
-150 grams of rice (preferably the kind you use for sushi, but plain rice is alright too)
-Milk (you’ll see how much you need in the recipe itself! :))
-210 grams of vanilla sugar
-25 grams of butter
-4 eggs, split
-500 milliliters of water
-500 grams of apples (that’s around 5/7 apples), peeled and cut into pieces
-A measuring cup
-A springform (or baking dish, whichever you prefer)
Now let’s get going!
Preheat your oven to 200℃ (392ºF) and put baking paper in your springform.
Wash your rice thoroughly, drain it well and put it in one of the pans.
Take something in which the rice fits precisely (a cup, bowl or a measuring cup). Take your cup or bowl, fill it up with milk two and a half times and put the milk in the pan the rice is in. Bring your mixture to a boil and let it simmer for fifteen minutes.
Add 80 grams of vanilla sugar to the milk and rice. Take your cooked rice off the fire and mix it together with the butter and egg yolks.
Put the pieces of apple, water and 80 grams of vanilla sugar in a pan. Bring it to the boil quickly en let it simmer for ten minutes.
Drain your apple pieces.
Spread the rice-mixture over the bottom of your springform and ‘sprinkle’ the apple pieces on top of it.
Whisk the egg whites till they’re stiff. Add the remaining vanilla sugar to it and whisk it all through for another minute or so. Cover your apple pieces with the ‘meringue’ and bake it all in the oven for 10 minutes.
When you’ve done all this correctly, you’ll have a real show stopper. It’s a delicious autumn-y treat to share with your loved ones.
