Apple Slice

March 8, 2013


I was inspired by a recipe that I found here.  Of course, Giulia’s photos of the Apple Slice are gorgeous and appealing, unlike the ones I have posted here for you of my rendition!  However, I could not let my photos stop me from posting this here for you today.  This is reminiscent of a French Clafouti and uses very little flour.  I completely love this and will be making it again.  I made a few changes to her recipe which included translating it into American Measurements and then adjusting the cooking temperature and time as I did not want blackened bottoms on my slices.  I have recommended an 8 X 8 baking dish for this, but I believe you could also get away with using an 8 X 6 dish and come away with an even denser custard.  In my photo the apples (which had cinnamon on them) almost look like home fried potatoes!   Believe me, this tastes nothing like a breakfast casserole.   I wonder if a bit more butter and a bit less cinnamon would have given a more appealing and browned look in these photos.  I hope you try this one.

  1. This looks heavenly – and love the healthy adjustments you made here, also that you don’t overwhelm the dessert with cinnamon.

  2. thanks so much Liz 🙂 I did want to try to make it a bit heathier. My Andy is Lactose Intolerant so I chose to use the fat free Lactaid, I know it would have been richer with cream, but honestly, it is just as yummy without. And I do love cinnamon, but in this case, you lose the taste of the lemon and cardamom when you go overboard. Hope you try this sometime, I ate two pieces already (one while I was photographing said slices!)

  5. This apple dessert looks divine, Wendy, and you did it such justice in your photographs. Yummy! I am craving it for breakfast along with my second cup of coffee and it is rare I have anything but java in the am.:)

  7. Oh my gosh, Wendy, I love, love, love this. Pinning right now. And I’m doing a dessert round up tomorrow (I do one every Friday on my top 5 desserts I run across during the week) and am including this one. Love!
