Mom bought some millet flakes in a shop in Germany after finding a recipe for a quark pie that made us rather curious. I made the pie a few days ago and it was lovely. You turn the ingredients (shown in the picture below) into a fluffy almost souffle like pie without a crust. It wasn't overly sweet and so light that you could eat it almost in one go, which we did not as it was our dessert. But I would love to make it again some time and have saved the recipe...
Above is a picture of the pie as it came out of the oven. The potholders are made by my mom from a vintage pattern, they are flowers (as if it isn't obvious). I love the old-fashioned feel of them & put them in the picture as they are pretty enough to be seen.
The pie is simple to make: Chop 2 medium apples into cubes and mix with the juice of 1/2 lemon. Add 2 eggyokes with 250 g of quark and 3 tblsp milk, 3 tblsp clear honey, lemon peel of 1/2 a lemon + 50 g of milletflakes. Mix well, beat 2 egg whites stiff in another bowl and fold into mixture. Spoon into greased ovendish and bake about 50 minutes at 180 degrees C.
We saw Sunday's at Tiffany's, about a woman who meets again her imaginary friend from childhood. That is a fun concept, wish I could have another chat with my own imaginary friend from the past ;) This film is now a favorite of mine & I would love to read the book that inspired the movie. I've put it on my wishlist and with my birthday comming close who knows...
Seen this movie and loved it? Ever cook with milletflakes? Or have another great pie recipe you'de like to share, please do.
