Pare, core and slice the apples.
Make a syrup of the sugar, butter and water. Cook the apples in the syrup until tender. Place in a buttered baking dish.
Beat the eggs until creamy. Add the flour and sugar and mix well. Add the cream slowly and pour mixture over the apples.
Bake in a moderate oven (preheated to 350°) for 50 minutes, or until it is set. Cover the baking dish with waxed paper while cooking to prevent browning too much.
Serve topped with whipped cream and a little cinnamon.
