Yummy Yet Modified I put 1 tablespoon of brown sugar into the marinating canned apricots then that liquid was added to the egg mixture. Also sprinkled brown sugar over the top with the almonds it created a crunchy topping that was yummy. Overall I would make this recipe again. Pros: I only had canned apricots even though it turned out excellent.
Great with home-grown fruit I've made this several times with home-grown very ripe apricots provided by a wonderful freind and it's been delicious each time! I've macerated the fruit with either Amaretto or Grand Marnier for at least 2 hours and both work equally well. it's such an easy recipe and it makes a great presentation. You really do need to serve (and eat) it while it's still warm to enjoy the full flavor.
I made this with pears but otherwise followed the recipe exactly using Amaretto liqueur. It puffed up beautifully while baking and made for an elegant presentation in a white quiche dish. I loved it because it's so light--just eggs and fruit mostly. Everyone raved about it and cleaned their plates!
I am always looking for recipes that can be made fat-free which means no eggs no butter or oils. Made this with apples/pears/cranberries instead of apricots and also used egg substitute along with egg whites as well as fat free milk - Voila! entirely fat-free and delicious.
I made this for a dinner party for 6-but I used blueberries instead.I served it was vanilla frozen yogurt. It was very easy to make had a wonderful fragrance and the whole thing was devoured by the six people in attendance-the men eating the lion's share!!! I would definitely make this again! A great alternative a pastry laden blueberry pie.
SERIOUSLY? READ THE FULL RECIPE BEFORE POSTING A QUESTION LIKE THAT. IT CLEARLY STATES: "Combine apricots and almond liqueur (or orange juice) in a large bowl. Grate 2 teaspoons zest from the lemon and set aside. Juice the lemon and stir 2 teaspoons of the juice into the apricots. Let stand for at least 1 hour." THEN IT SAYS TO DRAIN THE APRICOTS.
So it looks as thought I'm the first to actually review this apricot recipe using apricots.: )) It was just okay. I made it for a potluck breakfast all-girls potluck and it looked way cool but was a little boring. Surprising since I love almond flavor and this used it 3 ways. The only change I made was using skim milk instead of lowfat since I have skim milk in the house. Only half was eaten at book club so we had it for dessert that night. Not bad just not something people rave about.
