RECIPE: Spiced Apple Mochi Clafoutis

RECIPE: Spiced Apple Mochi Clafoutis


Kokuto (Okinawa brown sugar) adds a wonderful licorice flavor to this spiced apple clafoutis.

Servings: 4 


  • 100ml milk
  • 30g mochiko (glutinous sticky rice powder)
  • 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 tbsp kokuto (Okinawa black sugar)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C or 350°F. 
  2. In a liquid measuring cup, whisk together the milk, mochiko, egg, vanilla, and the granulated sugar. Set aside.
  3. Select an oven-safe skillet or round baking dish about 20 cm (8 in) in diameter. Over medium heat, melt the butter.
  4. 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.
  5. Turn off the heat and arrange the apples in the skillet evenly. Carefully pour the mochiko batter over the apples. 
  6. 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. 
  7. 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.
