Far Breton


A Classic Breton pudding, so easy to make! Everytime we visit our family in Brest, Brittany, a Far is produced. The recipe, although there are many variations, is the best one yet. This is my French brother in law’s recipe.


250g Plain flour

250g granualated sugar

1 litre milk

3g salt

4 eggs

salted butter

250g pitted prunes.


  1. Take a large ovenproof dish, I use large oval shaped pyrex. Place quite a few knobs of unsalted butter into it, shove it in the oven at 220c.
  2. Mix all the ingredients together.
  3. Pour the batter into the dish (once the butter has melted)
  4. Add pitted prunes randomly into the batter.
  5. Place in the oven for approx. 40mins, should be quite dark on the top and set.
