Yield:
6 to 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup buckwheat
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 4 egg whites, beaten until stiff
  • 1 cup cherry jam

Directions

Using a sharp knife, split the vanilla bean in half lengthwise. With the back of the knife, scrape the pulp away from the bean. Discard the bean. In a saucepan, over medium heat, combine the milk, vanilla bean pulp, and 1/2 cup of the butter. Bring to a boil. Stir in the buckwheat and continue to cook until tender, about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs and the sugar together. Stir in the cooled buckwheat mixture, lemon zest and raisins. Fold in the beaten egg whites. Butter a shallow baking pan (8 by 8 by 2-inch, square) with the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Pour the buckwheat mixture into the prepared pan. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Serve warm in individual serving bowls with cherry jam.
