Clafoutis is a classic French dessert where fruit is arranged in a baking dish/pan, covered with a thick batter and then baked. Traditionally cherries are used to make Clafoutis but you can use any other berry or apples, pears etc. Apples are easily available all year round so this Apple Clafoutis can be made anytime. Fresh Sarda Farms ghee replaces butter and lends a rich flavour to the Apple Clafoutis while milk enriches the taste. This recipe uses whole wheat flour to amp up the nutritional value of the dessert, you can use Maida (all purpose flour) instead.
