Clafouti for a Light Lunch or Supper

Have you tried Clafouti (Clah-foo-tea accent on the tea) yet? I last posted about this unique recipe several years ago. Now I have some new blogging buddies so I thought I'd trot it out again.
 

Both John and I really enjoy this recipe and I hope that you'll try it, too. We eat it for a light meal. I adapted my recipe from King Arthur's flour.





 ~Peach Clafouti~

Clafouti Ingredients:

*2 cups fruit (I use whatever I have, even canned. It's not always 2 cups either. Berries are particularly nice.)
* 2 eggs
* ¾ cup milk
* ¼ teaspoon salt
* 2 tablespoons butter, melted
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* ½ cup granulated sugar
* ¾ cup unbleached flour
* a sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg, if desired

Method:







 

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease  a 9-inch pie pan at least 1 ½ inches deep. Place the fruit in the pan.
  

In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, melted butter, vanilla, almond extract, and sugar. Whisk in the flour, stirring till most of the lumps are gone. Pour the batter over the fruit.
  

Bake the clafouti for 40 minutes or until a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove it from the oven, and serve it in wedges, warm or at room temperature. Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream or as is.

Do you recognize this for the shameless ploy it is? I am so tired of having all Pinterest activity around here based on an embroidery collage done for Mosaic Monday several years ago. Perhaps this will get some action. LOL!







A cheery new week to you...

  3. Is clafouti French for pie? That stuff looks delicious! And I'm thinking that I'm seeing peaches in there? Whatever it is, I'd like you to save me some.

  4. Looks and sounds yummy, easy to make. From the title I take it you eat the clafouti as the main for lunch but it appears to be a dessert to me?

  19. Well that is a great and simple recipe dear Vee. Thank you. I have about 7 ripe peaches on my grandson's early peach tree. I think they WANT to donate themselves to this recipe.

    Sending love,

  34. Oh yum. Now you have me hungry for clafouti...and I just barely finished dinner. I think you may be the one who introduced me to this dish in the first place...some years back. We have enjoyed it with peaches and berries...and I've shared a recipe over at MGCC once upon a time as well. Peach clafouti for breakfast sounds like a good idea!

  35. Well, just tempt me with this delicious looking recipe, will ya?! I will never lose any pounds before the reunion in July if I keep drooling over these yummy looking treats! I wonder how many calories drooling burns? I will copy and paste this recipe, because I just can't help myself, for making later!

  39. I'm just seeing this now. I'm doing an oddball backwards catch up of reading this morning. (Meaning that I have read the newest posts from blog friends but flitting around reading older ones.)

    Clafouti.
    I like to say that.
    I have never made it, and I am not sure if I've ever heard of it. It sounds familiar, though.
    It looks delicious so yes... I will be PINNING this.
