Matafan apple pancakes recipe
400g of fresh or frozen bilberries
150g of caster sugar
200g of flour
100g of butter
1 egg yolk
1 dessert spoon of sugar
1 pinch of salt
5cl of water
1- Make the pastry: make a hole in the middle of the heap of flour. Put the salt, the spoonful of sugar, the egg-yolk and the water in this hole. Mix together gradually, adding the butter, which you have softened and cut into small pieces, little by little.
2- Knead for a few moments, then roll the pastry into a ball and leave it in the refrigerator for 15 to 20 minutes.
3- Line the bottom of a tart dish with the pastry, prick the bottom and sprinkle with breadcrumbs, so that some of the bilberry juice will be absorbed during cooking.
4- Cover the pastry with the unwashed fruit, sprinkle the top with caster sugar and cook for 25min in a hot oven.
