Clafoutis is a French dessert which combines fresh fruit and custard. Just like a souffle, it rises beautifully then it deflates once cooled. It's best made in a cast iron skillet but any oven-proof skillet will work. Sprinkle with powdered sugar just before serving.

  • Mix eggs and brown sugar in a bowl until smooth. Whisk in flour and salt. Slowly add milk, stirring constantly until well combined. Stir in vanilla extract and set aside to rest.

  • Melt butter, brown sugar, and water in a 10 1/4-inch cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Stir frequently until mixture starts to boil. Reduce heat to medium; swirl skillet, but do not stir, until mixture starts to thicken, about 2 minutes. Add apples and cinnamon. Cook and stir until apples are crisp-tender and starting to brown, 15 to 18 minutes. Remove from heat.

  • Stir egg mixture and pour over the apples in the skillet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until edges are golden brown and custard is set, 28 to 35 minutes.
