Description

Apple Flognarde is a delicious traditional French specialty hailing from the Limousin and Auvergne region of France. A flognarde, similar to a clafoutis, is essentially a light, puffed “soufflé” baked with fresh fruit.

Ingredients

  • 2  Apples
  • ½ cups Plus 1 Tablespoon Flour, Sifted
  • 1-½ cup Milk
  • 3  Large Eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Real Vanilla Extract
  • ½ cups Plus 1 Tablespoon Sugar
  • 1  Lemon, Zested

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400 F.

Peel, core and cut the apples into thin slices. Butter a 9″ pie dish and place the apple pieces neatly on the bottom of the dish.

Whisk the flour, milk, eggs, sugar, vegetable oil, vanilla extract, sugar and lemon zest in a bowl (it will look like crepe batter). Pour the mixture over the apples in the dish.

Bake for 45 minutes, or until the apples are browned on top and the pancake is puffed. Remove from oven and set dish on a cooling rack.

The “pancake” will deflate when left to cool. Let it cool for 30 minutes before serving. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

This was a good dessert, but no wow factor. I feel like a different fruit would have been better- the vanilla flavor and apple was not ideal in my opinion. Maybe pear or berries would be nice- although also likely wetter, so not totally sure it would work.

This was super easy to put together and cooking time seemed right on. The ingredients did not quite all fit in a 9″ pie plate so I left out about 1/4 cup of the batter, that did not seem to be a problem though.
