Apricot clafoutis is a classic French dessert consisting of a simple batter filled with fresh apricots. This clafoutis recipe sticks to tradition but also incorporates pure maple syrup and maple sugar, adding extra sweetness to this delicious apricot dessert.
Chef’s tip: If you can’t get your hands on maple sugar, this apricot clafoutis recipe also works brilliantly with golden caster sugar substituted in a 1:1 ratio.

More about maple

The colour and flavour of maple syrup changes in subtle ways during the seasonal harvest

At the start of the sugaring season, the syrup is generally clear, with a light, sweet taste. It becomes darker with a caramelised flavour as the season progresses throughout the spring.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

Maple spread doesn't contain any butter or dairy products

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple spread comes from the sap of the maple tree that’s all.
