    1. Step 1

      Preheat the oven to 70 °C (keep warm setting).
    2. Step 2

      Bring a pan of salted water to a boil. In a separate small saucepan, melt the clarified butter.
    3. Step 3

      Blanch the cauliflower florets in the salted water for 8 minutes. Rinse with ice-cold water, drain and transfer to a baking dish. Pour two-thirds of the melted clarified butter over them.
    4. Step 4

      Heat the remaining clarified butter in a frying pan and fry the breadcrumbs until golden brown, adding a little salt. Spread half of the breadcrumbs over the cauliflower and keep warm in the oven.
    5. Step 5

      Melt the 100g butter in a small saucepan over low-medium heat. Sprinkle in the flour and whisk together to form a roux. Cook the roux for 2 minutes, stirring constantly, then slowly pour in the milk, stirring well between additions to prevent lumps. When the sauce is smooth, reduce the heat to low.
    6. Step 6

      Grate the apples on a box grater, add to the sauce and simmer for 5 minutes. Use a hand blender to purée to a smooth sauce and season with salt and pepper.
    7. Step 7

      Remove the baking dish from the oven and pour the apple cream sauce over the cauliflower. Serve sprinkled with the remaining breadcrumbs.
