Caramel Apple Clafoutis

Course: Breakfast, Dessert

Ingredients

Clafoutis

  • 3 apples thinly sliced, skin on
  • ¾ cup flour
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • powdered sugar for dusting

Caramel

  • 5 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp water
  • cup brown sugar

Instructions

Clafoutis

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Butter or spray a baking pan or pie pan with non-stick spray. In a medium sized bowl mix together the flour, granulated sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. In a large bowl combine the milk, eggs, and vanilla - and whisk. 
  • Pour dry ingredients into wet ingredients and whisk until well combined. 
  • Pour this batter into your baking dish and arrange apples in a spiral pattern on top. Bake about 40–45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove and let cool.

Caramel

  • Melt together the butter and water in a saucepan over low heat. Add in the sugar and stir occasionally on medium heat until the sugar is dissolved. Let boil, and lower heat a bit, continue cooking for about 2-3 minutes until thickened. (You can test it by letting it drip down the inside of the pan with your spoon – should drip slowly!) Take off the heat and let cool about 10-15 minutes.
  • Once cooled, dust clafoutis with powdered sugar, spoon caramel over the top, and enjoy!

Notes

  1. The edges may balloon up, but will settle once cooled.
  2. Clafoutis should have a thick, flan-like texture, or like a baked pancake – not a thick cake like texture.
