I have to admit this is the first time I’ve ever baked anything with apples and not added cinnamon, but I decided to give it a go with just grated fresh ginger for flavor – woowwwww loved it warm out of the oven, so good even better next day from the fridge. Yellow raisins for sure, since I had plain greek yogurt I just added a few tsp of sugar to the custard mix.
Yum, love this version of the french desert my family loves! And it uses our favorite Cabot Vanilla Bean Greek Yogurt….Definitely recommend trying this one!
