Maple Apple Clafouti Recipe



Maple Apple Clafouti Recipe

This fruit pudding could not be easier to make! A traditional comfort food in France, it is often made with cherries. I use apples and maple syrup to give it a real midwestern flair.
Ingredients :
4 medium tart apples, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons lemon juice
4 large eggs, room temperature
1-1/4 cups 2% milk
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Dash salt
Additional maple syrup, optional

Preheat oven to 375°. Toss apples with lemon juice; place in a greased a 2-qt. baking dish. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, milk, syrup and vanilla until combined. In another bowl, combine flour, cinnamon and salt; add to egg mixture. Pour batter over apples.
Bake until puffed and lightly browned, 40-50 minutes. Serve warm or cool on a wire rack. If desired, serve with additional maple syrup.

Test Kitchen tips :
When it's pulled right out of the oven, this is a showstopping masterpiece, all puffed up and golden brown. However, when it sits, it will deflate a little bit. So if you're looking to impress folks, serve it hot out of the oven.
When perfectly ripe pears can be found, swap those in for the apples. Their delicate flavor will really shine through in this elegant dessert.
