Tian de Pommes


  • 6 Fuji Apples, sliced or diced

  • 5 Tbsp Unsalted Butter, plus extra to grease

  • ½ cup Cold Milk

  • 1 cup Cold Cream or Half and Half

  • 1 cup Ground Almonds

  • 1 Tbsp Cornstarch

  • 4 Eggs

  • ¼ cup Sugar

  • To serve Confectioner’s Sugar


Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Cut the apples in ½ cubes or ¼ inch slices.

In a large non-stick frying pan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Gently stir in the apples and cook for 3-5 minutes or until lightly browned but not soft. Reserve.

In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, cream, almonds, and cornstarch. Add the eggs and sugar. Whisk again vigorously until well-blended. Turn the apples into the mixture and stir gently with a wooden spoon.

Lightly butter a tian or gratin dish or an ovenproof frying pan. Spread the apple batter in the dish or pan and place in the oven.

Bake for 45-50 minutes or until the batter is set and golden. Sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar. Serve warm.
