Yes, it appears that it might be (although the Platina version of the recipe does not specifically state that it is browned in an oven, and Martino's version appears to be considered a crustless torte).
Still and all, this appears to be the exception rather than the rule. As I said, you're probably not going to find a lot of examples -- Islamic dishes browned with a pan of coals notwithstanding.
