|Preparation||Cooking||Start to finish|
|31 min.||7 min.||38 min.|
|1||Peel 1 kg apple and cut into quarters. Remove the core and cut each quarter in half again to give 8 pieces from each apple.||15 min.|
|2||Melt 50 g Clarified butter in a large fryin pan on high heat. When really hot, add the apple pieces.
Fry for 1 or 2 minutes, then add 80 g caster sugar and leave to caramelise.
|3||Turn the apple pieces so that they brown nicely on both sides.
This cooking and carameising should be quite rapid, so that the apples don't have time to go soft.
|4||At the end of cooking, pour 4 tablespoons Calvados (apple liqueur) over the apples.||1 min.|
|5||Pull the pan slightly to the side and, if you have a gas hob, incline it towards the flame to light the Calvados (on an electric hob, of course, you'll need to use a match or lighter).
Warning: the flames can be high (see the photo), so I advise you to turn off the cooker hood, if you hae one, before doing this.
|6||Leave the flames to die down...|
|7||...the apples are now flambéed.|
|8||Arrange several apple pieces in a small dish for each guest.||8 min.|
|9||Pour cold real custard (crème anglaise) over and serve immediately.||5 min.|
