I love clafoutis. They are like pies only without the hassle of a pie crust. I made a pie crust once. It was not my idea of a good time. My idea of a good time is whisking a few ingredients together, pouring it over some fruit and having something magical happen.
See that? It’s magic. You get a crust, a wonderful custardy filling, and then your fruit. Three magical layers, with hardly any work at all. So, when looking for something easy and apple-ish to bake, I found Food 52 Apple Clafouti/Apple Flan and new that it was going on my list.
Now, that I am far enough down in my post, that Mr. Sidewalk Shoes will not be reading it, I have a confession. Yes, he reads my posts, but I don’t think he really reads them, just looks at the pictures. So, here goes. We were sitting at the dinner table, and I informed him that I was participating again with Michael Lee West and The Novel Bakers for apple week. He replied that was clever, were they all authors. I smiled, and replied that I had no idea, while in my head, I was thinking, “OMG. The Novel Bakers. Novel. Michael Lee West is an author. The Novel Bakers!” I don’t profess to be any sort of genius, but sometimes my sheer lack of geniusness astounds me.
So, while I might not be sharpest tool in the shed, the brightest star in the sky, I do know a good easy apple recipe when I find one! Follow the link above to Food 52, then make this. You’re welcome.
