Caramelized Apple Socca Spoon Bread

Serves 4.


    Caramelized Apple Socca Spoon Bread

    In-season apples, sautéed and baked in an egg socca pancake batter, will fill your home with the aroma of apple pie, without the fuss. This warm and cozy dessert can be made and served in under an hour, and goes beautifully with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or yogurt.



    Skip the sugar and make this savoury by sautéing onions instead of apples and adding minced chives instead of cinnamon. If you have it handy, drape over some wild smoked salmon when it comes out of the oven.
