Thanks so much for posting this! Made it this evening with gluten-free cup4cup flour and 1/4 cup sugar, and it was delicious + custardy. True winner! Can't wait to try next time with pears!

I don't bake, so I'm super happy to find this easy sweet treat to make! My daughter and I made this tonight, next time I may add cinnamon.

Looks delicious! I've made variations of Julia Child's clafoutis for many dinner parties, and it's always a sure fire crowd pleaser while being ridiculously easy in comparison to a pie. I subsequently realized that a savory clafoutis for a brunch is the solution for when you don't have the energy to make a quiche, so I actually think that a savory version of this with broccoli rage could be good.

This is brilliant, as always. What's your savory clafoutis base? The Julia Child minus the sugar?

That bears a startling resemblance (minus the baking powder and in a square pan) to the simple torta di mele my Florentine host mother made on Sundays when I was a student there. Definitely putting this one in my back pocket. So many apples, so little time! Thank you for posting this. Much appreciated. ;o)

I have made this recipe so many times for impromptu dinner parties that I hardly have to think about it. It is equally delicious made with pears.

When I asked Dorie which recipes she would immediately suggest I make from her book, this was the first thing she mentioned! So when both Nicholas AND Dorie tell me to do something, I do it. Also, I'm just imagining Brooke Shields stuffing a copy of this recipe into her pocket.

I've been debating on what sweet to make for Super Bowl watching (or pretending to watch), and I think this is the winner.
