Cooking dish: 26 cm diameter


6 apples   1.1 kg
7 tbsp butter, unsalted   100 g
1 cup sugar   200 g
2 eggs size large    
1 cup almonds, blanched   150 g
2/3 cup cream 15% [optional]   170 mL

Before you start

The almonds must be blanched in advance.

A mill or food processor will be very useful to finely grind the almonds. A mixer will be very useful to beat the egg whites.


  1. Preheat the oven to 205°C/400°F. Butter a baking dish.
  2. Peel and core the apples then cut them in half. Blanch them 4 min in a pot of boiling water. Drain well and transfer to the prepared baking dish. Set aside.
  3. Mix the butter and sugar in a bowl. Set aside.
  4. Separate the egg whites from the yolks: add the yolks to the butter-sugar mixture, incorporating them well; add the whites to another bowl. Pulse the almonds in a food processor until finely ground, then add them to the mixture.
  5. Beat the egg whites to form stiff peaks using a mixer, then fold them into the mixture, blending gently with a spatule. Pour the mixture over the apples in the baking dish and bake in the middle of the oven 20 min.
  6. Let the apples cool down, then serve them with the cream, if desired.
