Clafouti

I am all about easy baking and this is about as easy as it gets. This country-French dessert adapts well to almost any fruit and is topped with a batter and baked til bubbly brown. It can be served warm or room temperature.

  • Batter
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • Fruit
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 cups fruit, if whole, peel and chop or slice
  • Confectioners' sugar for dusting

Heat the oven to 400°F.

Beat together all the batter ingredients until smooth and frothy. Set aside to rest while preparing remaining ingredients.

Pour melted butter into a 9 or 10” shallow pan, quiche pan or cake pan and sprinkle with the 2 tablespoons of sugar spreading evenly. Place fruit over the sugar and cover with the batter.

Bake for about 30 minutes or until the clafoutis is puffed and brown on top. Dust with confectioners sugar and serve immediately.

Clafoutis will collapse quickly but will still be delicious.
