3 large eggs
¾ cup heavy cream
½ cup turbinado sugar
¼ teaspoon almond extract
¼ teaspoon rose water (optional)
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons almond meal
2 tablespoons brown rice or whole wheat flour
Pinch salt
6 ounces raspberries
Sliced almonds, to decorate
1 tablespoon white sugar

Preheat the oven to 375°. Place the baking rack in the middle of the oven. Butter an 8-inch baking pan or 6 (4-ounce) ramekins. Set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, turbinado sugar, almond extract and rosewater (if using) together until well combined. Add the almond meal, flour and salt, and stir until you obtain a homogenous batter. Pour the batter in the prepared pan(s).

Arrange the raspberries on top of the batter, pressing them lightly in. Scatter the almond slices all over. Sprinkle with white sugar.

Place the gratin on the oven rack and bake until set and golden, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool on a rack.

Serve lukewarm or at room temperature.

    Can we still get access to your older recipes? I am specifically looking for your Moroccan Lentil Stew recipe. It was SO delicious!

    I am in the process of gathering my recipes again and posting them here as soon as I can. I already posted a few lentil recipes in the “Beans & Lentils” category. I had quite a few so I’m not sure which one you are looking for.

    You may be able to pull all your recipes from the Wayback Machine. I was able to pull your Green Harissa recipe: https://web.archive.org/web/20131011153248/http://www.dinnersanddreams.net/2013/09/green-harissa-recipe.html

    I adore your site and your recipes. Though I must admit that I miss some of your previous recipes… I did not print them out! (The meatball recipe was a hit with kids. Your bisbas was my favorite amongst so many other recipes.) Please let me know if you might email them to me – or perhaps they are present on another site? Many thanks and warmest wishes for a happy new year.
