Apple & Lemon Clafoutis - Clafoutis aux pommes et citron




Another French classic treat with a little twist - Apple Clafoutis that I like to share with you today . This dessert usually calls for cherry but you can also replace it with any seasonal fruits even kiwi .  I've tried this recipe from Gourmand magazine a couple of years ago . Love the lemony flavour & the tartness of the apples .... YUM
