Apple clafoutis bread is a delightful combination of a clafoutis (a French dessert made with fruit and a custard-like batter) and a bread-like texture. Here's an easy recipe for making homemade apple clafouti bread:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
Powdered sugar for dusting (optional)
Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a baking dish (like a pie dish or a loaf pan) and set aside.
Prepare the Batter: In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, eggs, milk, vanilla extract, and salt until you have a smooth batter.
Add Apples: Gently fold the sliced apples into the batter until they are well coated.
Pour into Baking Dish: Pour the batter and apple mixture into the greased baking dish, spreading it evenly.
Bake: Place the baking dish in the oven and bake for about 35-40 minutes or until the clafouti bread is set and golden brown on top.
Brush with Butter: About 5 minutes before baking ends, brush the bread's top with melted butter to give it a nice sheen.
Cool and Serve: Allow the clafouti bread to cool slightly before slicing. Dust with powdered sugar before serving, if desired.
Serve: Serve warm or at room temperature. It's delicious alone or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
