Far Breton - a classic French dessert

Options
I made a couple of these for a charity bake sale tomorrow at work. A lovely dish to complete a meal, possibly because it's infused with a little rum, Far Breton is a classic French dessert from the Brittany region of France. Really easy to make, recipe in the link below:

    Great outcome right there.  Glad you are again infusing the forum with your skills.  Nov Scotia has no idea the pending gourmet offerings.  
    Louisville; Rolling smoke in the neighbourhood. # 38 for the win.  Life is too short for light/lite beer!  Seems I'm livin in a transitional period.

    Thanks folks. 👍

    @Botch it was a new one on me too. Next up I’ll try making Banh Chuoi Nuong, the Vietnamese approach to it.

    Stellar! I've been looking for sweets to make with blueberries, so this is bookmarked.

    Edit: just noted that this calls for prunes.

    I think it could work with blueberries instead of prunes. Only one way to find out :). I've made it with sultanas in the past, that worked well.

    My family has been making something similar with blueberries since we have them in abundance. Recently we add some peaches 🍑 to the blueberries.

    Sultanas sound like the happy middle ground :) This is something that should go down well on this side.

    @Gulfcoastguy @caliking I reckon it would work with huckleberries too.
