Yield Serves 4–6

Number Of Ingredients 6

1 cup whole milk
3 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup all-purpose flour

Steps:

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla, and butter until the sugar is dissolved. Add the flour and whisk until smooth. Pour the batter into a cast iron skillet or pie pan.
  • 2. Now add your favorite fruit or flavoring (see below). Bake until the clafoutis is beautifully puffed and golden, 35-40 minutes. Serve immediately.
  • Clafoutis Variations: Concord Grape Clafoutis: Once the batter is in the skillet, scatter 2 cups slightly crushed Concord or other black or red grapes on top. Cherry Clafoutis: Scatter 2 cups pitted cherries onto the batter once it's poured into pie plates. Pear Clafoutis with Pear Eau de Vie: Core 1 ripe pear and cut into pieces. Pour the batter into the skillet and top with the pear pieces. Bake. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons eau de vie and serve immediately. Milk Chocolate and Hazelnut Clafoutis: Melt 1 cup chopped milk chocolate in a large mixing bowl set above a simmering pot of water. Fold in the clafoutis batter until smooth and fully incorporated. Pour into a skillet or pie plate, sprinkle with 1/4 cup coarsely chopped hazelnuts, and bake.

I made this clafoutis with blueberries instead of cherries, and it turned out great! I'm sure it would be just as good with any other type of fruit.

I made this clafoutis with frozen cherries, and it turned out great! I was worried that the cherries would be too tart, but they were actually very sweet and flavorful.

This clafoutis was a bit too sweet for my taste, but it was still very good. I would recommend using less sugar next time.

This clafoutis was a delight! The texture was perfect - tender and fluffy on the inside, with a slightly crispy crust on the outside. The flavor was also lovely, with the sweetness of the cherries perfectly balanced by the richness of the custard.
