- 100ml milk
- 1 large egg
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- 10g granulated sugar (adjust if using sweeter apples)
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1 small to medium apple, cored, peeled and sliced into 12 or so pieces
- 20g walnuts, chopped (optional)
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- ½ tsp ground cloves
- ½ tsp ground allspice
- ½ tsp salt
- 2 tbspHateruma Kokuto Powder
- Preheat the oven to 180°C or 350°F.
- In a liquid measuring cup, whisk together the milk, mochiko, egg, vanilla, and the granulated sugar. Set aside.
- Select an oven-safe skillet or round baking dish about 20 cm (8 in) in diameter. Over medium heat, melt the butter.
- Toss the apples and walnuts in the spices, salt, and kokuto then saute in the buttered skillet until the apple pieces are softened and slightly caramelized.
- Turn off the heat and arrange the apples in the skillet evenly. Carefully pour the mochiko batter over the apples.
- Bake in the oven for approximately 15-20 minutes, or until the apples are nicely caramelized and the edge of the clafoutis is a nice golden brown.
- Let cool for 10 minutes before cutting. The clafoutis is best served warm, topped with powdered sugar or even a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
