This is my version of a delectable pud I had in Milan. You could chill this before serving, but I like it warm. The rum at the end is optional, but makes for a nice presentation at a dinner party.
You could make individual charlottes for a nice dinner party presentation by using ramekins instead of a baking dish.
it is a delicious dessert! very simple to make and still exquisite. It's really a restaurant-like dessert. - 17 Mar 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Im the Food Service Director at a nursing home. We did this recipe at a candlelight dinner. Set up carts that went through the dining room and flamed each one at each table. Easy to make and the residents got a real kick out of it. - 23 Dec 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This did not work for me.The rum wouldn't catch fire. Turns out you have to use high proof rum. The apples tasted good at least. Don't do this for a group for the first time with out trying it first. - 03 Nov 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
