José Pizarro: apple pie

I received his wonderful cookbook last year for Christmas.
And, as can happen, haven't indulged in its pages for some time.

But I found myself drawn to his, or rather, his friend Rafael's recipe, in need of something to follow our suckling pork & patatas bravas festive dinner.
My kitchen still smells of Spanish custard this morning.

It's an absolutely delightful pudding.  And lovely to make too.

the recipe

my tweaks

  • the sugar content.  I used a third the sugar at each mention, and also included 1-2 tablespoons honey
  • the vanilla.  I used a slug of my home made vanilla extract (thank you Celia and Joanna)
