It is really nice to come home to a delicious and beautiful dessert.  Ashley recently made clafoutis with blackberries and I absolutely loved it.  She thought it was overcooked, but I cannot imagine a better consistency.  Also, it was made with blackberries, so it wasn’t too too sweet, and was actually even tangy, and wonderful.  I predict many clafoutis in the summer, featuring many fruits (I am terribly excited to try a pomegranate one!).  I have to admit that I wasn’t there for any of the baking process, but I can assure you that this was delicious!

  • 200g flour
  • 120g sugar
  • a pinch of salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 80g butter, melted
  • 250ml whole milk
  • 400g blackberries

Combine the flour, salt, and sugar, then beat the eggs in.  Mix in the melted butter, and add the milk.  Make sure everything is very very smooth.  In a greased springform pan, scatter the berries, and pour the batter over them.  Bake at 400 F for 30 minutes.   This is a wonderful dessert, but, as we noticed, also appropriate for breakfast, snacks, and ummm, dinner.  It’s nice to be a grown-up.

  1. Plums… wait until they’re almost free in the summer and make a plum clafouti. It’s so great, it seems like a waste to eat them raw. And that’s from ME, who just loves them any which way.

  2. mmm…the purple blackberries bleeding into the creamy custard is so lovely to see. i’ll bet it’s even better to taste…
