Apple Clafouti

 Clafouti, also known as clafoutis is a classic French
 dessert which resembles a fruit filled custard or sweet 
 frittata. While native to the Limousin region of France,
 clafouti is made in many other locations as well, and it 
 is a popular dessert food. Since clafouti is very easy   
 to make and it has an elegant presentation, it is an 
 excellent choice of quickie dessert for dinner parties. 
   The fruit is layered with a dense batter and baked
 until the batter puffs up, just like a quiche. The
 dessert is allowed to cool slightly before being served
 with whipped cream, ice cream, crème anglaise, or 
 a similar topping. It can be served directly out of the
 baking pan also.

     the baking dish, set aside the remaining batter.
3. Place it in a preheated oven for 5-7 minutes until the

     upper layer sets in and starts to thicken but it is not 
     thoroughly baked.
4. Remove it from the oven and arrange the sliced

    apples in a fan pattern, pour the remaining batter
