Clafouti is one of my all time favourite desserts, it’s one of those dishes you smell wafting through the house on a Sunday afternoon that you just can’t wait to dig in to. Clafouti is a regional French dessert and this recipe is easy as pie (actually easier) – it literally takes about five minutes to prepare. You can substitute the apricot for any stone fruit and even add a cheeky glass of liqueur. Enjoy it warmed up with a scoop of vanilla bean ice-cream or custard.
- 4 heaped tbl of plain flour
- 2 1/2 tbl castor sugar
- 3 eggs
- 3 pinches salt
- 570ml milk
- 1/4 tin apricot halves, drained
- icing sugar to dust
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Line a flat baking tray with baking paper.
In a mixing bowl combine the flour, eggs, sugar and salt. Then pour in half the milk and beat the mixture to make it light and fluffy. Add the rest of the milk and mix well until the mixture resembles a pancake batter.
Pour the mixture into the lined baking tray and place apricot halves in the dish.
Bake for 35 minutes or until a knife comes out clean. Remove from oven and wait cool then dust with icing sugar.
Happy baking, love Jem x
