I've had recipes for clafouti in my recipe box for years; it wasn't until last summer that I actually tried making one. A clafouti is a French dessert that's somewhere between a custard and a cake. It's traditionally made with cherries; you can use just about any type of summer fruit in this delicious dessert, though!
Since clafouti is both extremely tasty *and* quick and inexpensive to make, it's become one of my go-to summer desserts.
3 cups sliced fresh peaches
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup light (10%) cream
3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 tsp almond or vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt
icing sugar (optional)
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 2 quart casserole or baking dish. Arrange the peach slices in the bottom of the dish. In blender, combine remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth and pour over peaches. Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until puffed and golden brown. Dust with icing sugar before serving if desired. Serve warm.
This is probably supposed to serve 6-8, but I confess the four of us always polish the whole thing off in one go :)

This looks just fabulous and your description of clafouti makes me want to try it even more. I would like a piece for breakfast, oops, it's almost lunch.ReplyDelete
I'd say a strong argument can be made for eating clafouti for breakfast - I know I've been tempted :) Milk, eggs, fruit - very nutritious, lol!ReplyDelete
Wow this looks great! I need to make more fruity things while it's still summer!!!ReplyDelete
