Clafoutis is a wonderfully simple French dessert of fruit suspended in a flan-like egg custard and baked in the oven. It is such a beautiful way to celebrate seasonal fruit. Often made with whole cherries in summer or blueberries too, but many love it with plums- which just look so beautiful. Other stone fruits like apricots and nectarines are lovely too in winter, some prefer to use frozen raspberries.
This dish may need a little extra cooking time, so begin checking at the 25-minute mark for “doneness”. The clafoutis should still wobble a little and will firm up upon cooling. Serve warm with spoonfuls of double cream.
Cook and prep time: 30 minutes
