Apple clafoutis (kla-FOO-tee) – with or without a Thermomix

A clafouti (pronounced kla-FOO-tee) is traditionally a rustic French dessert. It consists of fruits baked in a custard-like batter similar to pancake batter. It’s simply delicious and brings back so many fond memories of summers at my grandparent’s house!
