|Preparation||Cooking||Start to finish|
|57 min.||20 min.||1 hour 17 min.|
|1||Prepare 350 g Lemon Confectioner's Custard.
When done, cover the custard, stand the pan in cold water and leave to cool.
|2||Peel 6 apples and cut into small pieces.||10 min.|
|3||Pour 30 g Clarified butter into a large frying pan on high heat. When hot, add the apples and 2 tablespoons caster sugar.
Sauté the apples until they soften, but without browning.
You can flambé them with 3 tablespoons Calvados (apple liqueur) if you wish, but this is not essential.
|4||Beat 90 g egg white to the "stiff peak" stage, adding 75 g caster sugar towards the end while still beating, to make the raw meringue mix.||4 min.|
|5||Take a little of the meringue and add this to the lemon custard.
Mix in with a soft spatula.
|6||Then add this mixture to the rest of the meringue and fold in gently until evenly mixed and light.
Note:Mixing in 2 stages like this helps to combine the two different textures of the meringue and confectioner's custard.
|7||Add the apple pieces and mix again gently.
Preheat the oven to 390°F (200°C).
|8||Put the mixture into a buttered gratin dish and bake for about 10 minutes.||3 min.|
|9||After 5 minutes, sprinkle the top with caster sugar and change your oven setting to "grill" (broiler) to brown the top (if your grill is separate, leave the dish in the oven for a couple of minutes longer, then brown briefly under the grill).||10 min.|
