Caramelised Apple Clafoutis w/ Roasted Wattleseed & Cinnamon Myrtle
Clafoutis is a cake like dessert that originated from the Limousin region of
central France and is one of the easiest and tastiest desserts to make. It starts with a sweet cake like batter which is poured into a baking dish brimming with the fruit of your choice, and baked. Traditionally it was made with fresh cherries and vanilla, but as usual, we’ve changed this up a little by adding Caramelised Apple, Roasted Wattleseed and finely ground Cinnamon Myrtle. We know you’re going to love this native version of clafoutis as much as we do.
