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.

Absolutely delish! We followed the recipe as written and used honeycrisp apples. I only substituted almond flour for the all-purpose flour. It's like having apple pie without the crust. Pairs wonderfully with ice cream and coffee. Read More

I followed the directions and it came out delicious. A 10.5 inch iron skillet is a #8. I used my #8 Wagner skillet which is about 80 years old and apples were perfectly cooked and slices lifted out easily. If you don’t have an old skillet, go to an antique store and buy one. The newer ones contain steel. Read More

This is SO delicious. I did not peel the apples because the pealing has so many nutrients. Read More

I know this is a good recipe, even without my changes. I used half Tuaca in the water portion and some orange juice after I used zest in the apples. **I usually half recipes on my own, but let Allrecipes do the substitutions. Shame, Allrecipes! - You didn't reduce the butter! I had a feeling it was wrong and should have checked. Next time, I just do it myself. Came okay for that, but it affected the texture. Read More
