Easy Apple and Cinnamon Clafoutis recipe – a great treat to enjoy after dinner

1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp castor sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
4 apples (about 500g) peeled, cored and cut into thin slices
3 large eggs
50ml castor sugar
1 tsp vanilla paste
80ml (1⁄3 cup) flour
200ml milk
100ml cream
icing sugar for dusting (optional)
cream or ice cream to serve (optional)

How to
Preheat your oven to 180ºC and grease a 22cm (or slightly smaller) pie dish.

Place the butter, castor sugar and cinnamon a small frying pan. Melt together over a medium heat. Add the apple slices and toss in the melted butter mixture. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring regularly until the apples have softened slightly. Set aside.

Place the eggs and castor sugar in a separate bowl. Whisk until creamy and combined. Add the vanilla paste and flour and whisk together. Finally, whisk in the milk and cream.

Arrange half of the apple slices in the pie dish. Pour the batter over the top, then arrange the remaining apple slices on top. Bake for 25-35 minutes until set and golden around the edges.

Allow the clafoutis to cool for a few minutes. Dust with icing sugar and serve warm with cream or vanilla ice cream.

Cook’s notes:
Baking time will depend on the size of your dish – a smaller, deeper tart will obviously need to bake longer than a larger, shallower one. Keep an eye on the tart and adjust the time accordingly.
