The texture of the clafoutis is more like a cake than a pudding.


  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 6 granny smith or other tart cooking apples, quartered, cored, peeled, and sliced into 1/4'' slices
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 13 cups flour
  • 1 12 cups sugar
  • 12 cup heavy cream


Step 1

Preheat oven to 350º. Grease a large ceramic or glass baking dish with butter and put apples into dish in an even layer.

Step 2

Put milk into a large mixing bowl, add baking powder, and stir until completely dissolved. Add eggs, flour, sugar, and heavy cream and whisk until batter is smooth.

Step 3

Pour batter evenly over apples, smoothing with a rubber spatula. Gently shake dish to settle batter, exposing some apples. Transfer to oven and bake until a toothpick inserted into batter comes out clean and a golden brown crust has formed, about 50 minutes. Set aside to let cool for at least 10 minutes before serving. Serve warm or at room temperature.
