Blueberry Buttermilk Clafoutis

Blueberry Buttermilk Clafoutis

Clafoutis are always a nice way to showcase fresh fruit in a dessert that is elegant, but easy to make. The custardy french dessert can be made with just about any kind of fruit, although it is traditionally made with cherries. I do like a cherry clafoutis, but I often save my cherries for pies, so I am much more likely to showcase other fruits ... Read More »

Plum Clafoutis

Plum Clafoutis

Baking with plums is wonderful, not just because plums are so tasty, but because plums are a beautiful color and make for some of the most incredible looking desserts you’ll come across. The flesh of most plums is a reddish yellow color. Most of the coloring of the fruit comes from the skin, so I tend to leave it on when I bake with them. ... Read More »

Peach and Meyer Lemon Clafoutis

Peach Clafoutis

I bought a few peaches this week and they hit their peak today, filling the kitchen that sweet, floral aroma of ripe peaches. I ate one, then wanted to use the rest in a dessert where they would shine. Peaches go well in many dishes, but I decided on a Peach Clafoutis. It’s hard to beat a clafoutis for a one-dish fruit dessert because they ... Read More »

Blackberry Clafoutis

When you have fresh berries around, a clafoutis is a great way to showcase them. A clafoutis is a French dessert that is somewhere between a cake and a custard.

Individual Strawberry Clafoutis

Individual Strawberry Clafoutis

A clafoutis is somewhere between a cake and a custard. It’s a french dish, a baked dessert (although you can make savory clafoutis as well) that has lots of milk and eggs in it and is held together with a little flour for added stability. In general, clafoutis have a great eggy flavor to them and go well with a variety of different fruits. Pears ... Read More »

Cherry Tomato Clafoutis

Cherry Tomato Clafoutis

Now that my tomatoes are starting to ripen left and right, I’m starting to look for more uses for them than just adding them to salads and making pasta sauces. And because I know that I haven’t even hit the peak of tomato season yet, I prefer that the recipes I end up with use more than just two or three tomatoes each. This recipe ... Read More »

A pair of updated recipes

cranberry orange bread and pear clafoutis, redux

From time to time I’ll go back through my archives and update some of my older recipes. I actually have many recipes that I remake on a very regular basis, and I like to be able to add a new picture or two to a post with a less-than-perfect picture when I can. These two recipes – Orange Cranberry Bread and Pear Clafoutis – are special to ... Read More »

Cherry Blueberry Clafoutis

I had it in mind to make a blueberry clafoutis, but much to my chagrin, I found that the berries at the bottom of my small basket were beyond saving, much like the fresh raspberries I have had such bad luck with this year. I ended up adding some frozen black cherries to dish and the combination of fruits was delicious. The recipe is only ... Read More »
