You may have seen charlotte recipes that call for sponge-cake ladyfingers and for the charlotte to be served cold, but classically, an apple charlotte calls for bread and is served warm. This recipe was created by my pastry chef, Zoe Behrens.
Make Ahead Tips
Apple Charlottes can be completely prepared a day ahead, covered (still in the molds) with plastic, and refrigerated. To reheat, let them sit at room temperature while you heat the oven to 350°F. Bake until hot, about 12 min., and unmold.

Followed recipe exactly as stated, except for the oven temp. 475 seemed too high. I baked mine at 375.
Used golden delicious apples, as suggested, and served with creme fraiche.
Presentation was beautiful and the flavor was delicious.
Unbelievably delicious and easy to make. As author suggests, can be made ahead and heated up which makes it even easier. I served it with both(either of)the creme fraiche and Hagen Das vanilla ice cream. I haven't tasted a more delicious dessert in a long, long time.
