Apple Clafoutis

This is a classic french pudding cake with a delicate custard layer.

So easy to make with the fresh fruit of your choice, milk,  flour, eggs, sugar and salt.

Start with enough fruit to fill the bottom of a deep dish pie plate with one layer.

Cut the apples into 1 inch cubes. I used Fuji apples, and they were wonderful!

Cook the apples over medium heat with 1~1/2 tablespoons of butter and 1/4 cup of sugar.

Add 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon and cook for about 10 minutes.


1/2 cup all-purpose flour

3/4 cup sugar

pinch of salt

To the flour mixture, add 3 medium eggs lightly beaten and whisk in 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons of whole milk.

This batter is very runny like pancake batter, so don’t let the consistency concern you. The fact that it’s so milky, is what gives it that wonderful custard in the end.

Layer the apples and the pan juice in a buttered deep-dish pie pan.

Pour the batter over the apples.

Run the dish in a preheated oven at 325′ for 50-60 minutes.


See that creamy custard layer under the apples? You need it!

    Who knew it was that easy? I am definitely going to try this once it stops raining enough for me to get to the grocery store. Thanks Caroline!
