Dear PRHC Cooks,
Thank you for introducing me to clafoutis. It’s a genius dessert. Easy to assemble. Easy to bake. Easy to serve. And just fulfills all my flan and custard cravings. Plus there’s fruit. I brought this dish to a family gathering – a family that thinks that everything I make is too sweet. Well, guess what? They loved this because it was at the right sugar level for them.
Raspberry Nectarine Clafoutis
Recipe adapted from Bake the Seasons
¾ cup heavy cream
½ cup whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 large eggs
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup all-purpose flour
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup raspberries
4 nectarines, sliced
Note: The original recipe in the cookbook calls for apricot and raspberries, and 6 apricots for that. I swamped it out for nectarines!
- Butter a 9-inch round baking dish. Preheat your oven to 375°F.
- Pour the heavy cream, milk, vanilla extract, eggs, sugar, flour, salt, and nutmeg into a blender. Mix until combined. Let the frothy batter sit for half an hour.
- Wash the raspberries and nectarines. Slice the nectarines. You can keep the skin on the nectarines if you want.
- Pour one third of the batter into the baking dish and bake for 15 minutes. It’ll be puffy when it comes out of the oven, but that’s okay!
- Add in the fruit, you can even push some down into the batter at the bottom.
- Pour the remaining batter over. Bake for 40-45 minutes until the edges are golden brown.
- Take it out to cool, the clafoutis will deflate a little bit, but that’s normal. You can also sprinkle with icing sugar before serving if you’d like.
I mean, how easy is this? You only need a blender … or you can do this with a bowl and whisk. Easy clean up!
You might need a pot holder or pot trivet since the dish will be hot from the oven before you add the fruit and the rest of the batter.
Umm, I tried to do a pattern with the nectarines so that each slice would get one. I don’t know if you can see the spiral with all those raspberries in the way.
I love me the puffy golden brown edges. It’s like a pancake or cake or tart or pudding or flan or custard dessert all in one.
