Apple clafoutis: a perfect dessert at the end of a meal

Apple clafoutis

Served with a scoop of ice cream, the apple clafoutis is everything you could want from a dessert: let’s find out how to prepare it together.

Clafoutis, as the name suggests, is a sweet of French origin. Although the traditional recipe is based on cherries, no one forbids you to make it also with other fruit as we did with the apple clafoutis. The peculiarity of this recipe lies in the creamy consistency , similar to that of a pudding. The best way to enjoy it is lukewarm, accompanying it with a scoop of vanilla or cream ice cream. In fact, however, the apple and cinnamon clafoutis can also be enjoyed cold without losing anything.

The caramelized apple clafoutis is quite simple to make and the trick to achieving the characteristic flavor is in the timing. To have the caramel of the right consistency, therefore fluid, the dessert should be served immediately: when it cools it will tend to solidify, frustrating your efforts. However, as mentioned before, you can enjoy the dessert even when cold.
