Ingredients

Crepe Batter:
Apple Filling:
Burnt Almond Cream:

Directions

Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl. Add the water and milk. Beat with a whip until smooth. Add the egg, egg yolk, Calvados, and butter. Let rest 1 hour. 

Meanwhile, for the apple filling, for the Apple Filling: preheat oven to 450 degrees F. 

Toss the ingredients together in a bowl, and place in a baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes. Toss several times during cooking so the bottom does not burn. Let cool 1 hour. 

For the Burnt Almond Cream: preheat oven to 375 degrees F. 

Place the almonds on a sheet pan and cook until browned. Remove from pan immediately and place on paper towels. Let cool. Mix all ingredients in a small bowl and set aside. 

Heat a 6-inch non-stick pan. Spray with pan release and a small amount of crepe batter. Roll the pan until the bottom has a thin coat. Cook until bottom side is golden brown and flip. Cook for another few seconds and remove from pan onto paper towels. 

To assemble the gateaux, brush the bottom of a glass pie plate with a thin film of butter. Lay in one crepe best side up. Add a thin layer of almond cream. Lay the apples out on the cream. Top with another crepe. Press down to make level and repeat this until the gateaux is to the top or you have used all the ingredients. Make sure not to make the layers too thick, as the gateaux will slide when cut and served. Finish with a layer of apples and almond cream. 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. 

Bake for 30 minutes until bubbling and nicely browned on top. Cut into wedges and serve.
