Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 5 min.
Apple Batter Puddings
Preheat the oven to 390°F (200°C)

Put 50 g whole almonds into a baking tin and toast in the oven for 5 minutes.

Stage 2 - 3 min.
Apple Batter Puddings
When cooled, chop the almonds roughly with a knife.

Set aside.

Stage 3 - 2 min.
Apple Batter Puddings
Put into a mixing bowl: 4 eggs, 80 g liquid cream, 40 g caster sugar, 10 g Vanilla sugar and 2 tablespoons Calvados (apple liqueur).

Stage 4 - 1 min.
Apple Batter Puddings
Beat until thoroughly mixed.

Stage 5 - 2 min.
Apple Batter Puddings
Butter individual oven-proof dishes.

Stage 6 - 5 min.
Apple Batter Puddings
Peel 4 apples and slice.

Arrange one sliced apple in each dish.

Stage 7 - 2 min.
Apple Batter Puddings
Pour the batter over the apples.

Stage 8 - 1 min.
Apple Batter Puddings
Scatter the chopped almonds over the top.

Stage 9 - 20 min.
Apple Batter Puddings
Bake for about 20 minutes.

To enjoy at its best, serve hot or warm.
For the apples, opt for a fairly tart eating variety, such as Cox's, Reinettes or Elstar (cooking apples like Bramley soften quickly and the slices will not hold their shape so well).

For a more caramelized finish, sprinkle a little icing sugar over the top of the puddings 5 minutes before the end of cooking.
Several days in the fridge, covered with plastic film. Reheat beofre serving.
Home made.
