I’ll try and keep this short and sweet as my last post was quite the essay, and to be honest this recipe doesn’t call for much explaining. It’s good, so just go and make it.
I’ve already done a clafoutis recipe on here before, but it’s such a nice, easy recipe and it always turns out really well. It’s a classic French dessert, traditionally made with cherries, and has a flan-like custard texture. It’s one of those desserts that can be eaten at any time of the day, and I like mine for breakfast served warm with a dollop of natural yogurt. As I didn’t have cherries on hand I used plums instead. I also popped in some thin slices of apple and I think the two flavours really compliment each other!
- 1 1/3 cup plain flour
- 1/2 cup caster sugar
- 3 eggs
- pinch of salt
- 1/3 cup butter, melted
- 14 fl oz whole milk
- 3 plums, sliced
- 1 apple, thinly sliced
- powdered sugar, to dust
1) Preheat the oven to 200c and grease and line a baking tin.
2) Combine the flour, sugar and salt into a large bowl and then add the eggs one at a time. You should mix after each addition.
3) Once smooth, mix in the butter and then gradually add the milk. Mix really well to ensure the smoothest of smooth batters.
4) Arrange the sliced fruit in the bottom of the pan and then pour over the batter. Bake for 30-40 minutes until a skewers inserted in the middle comes out clean. The dessert itself will still be wobbly though!
5) Allow to cool fully before serving.
