Raspberry clafoutis



Clafoutis are a French dessert, typically made with cherries. And if cherries are substituted with other fruits, we are supposed to call it a flognarde. This homely dessert originates from Limousin, a region in central France. If you enjoy raspberries, you'll love this dessert. The juice of the raspberries seep into the flan-like dessert and add a fresh flavor. Here's the recipe!

Ingredients (serves 4):
1 egg + 1 yolk
1/3 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
pinch of salt
1/2 cup cream
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup whole milk
4 1/2 oz (125 g) raspberries

Preheat oven to 350ºF (180°C).

Butter 4 ramekins. Divide the raspberries between the ramekins.

In a bowl, mix the eggs, sugar and vanilla extract. Whisk in the flour, then pour the milk and the cream. Mix until smooth.

Pour the batter into the ramekins and place them on a baking tray. Bake for 35 minutes, until the clafoutis is set and golden. Let cool slightly.

  25. Cherine,
    Gorgeous looking clafoutis. I normally feel a bit intimidated with baking but this recipe seems easy to make. I've got some ramekins sitting in the cupboard I bought long ago and never used. It think time has arrived :)

  30. Do you think I could substitute 1% milk for the cream and whole milk or would that ruin it?

    ReplyDelete
  31. No i think this will ruin it.

  32. Oh, I so like this! However, I wonder if I could cut down on the sugar by using 1/4 stevia and 1/4 sugar.

    1. If you use 1/4 sugar the result and taste wont be the same knowing that this clafoutis is not too sweet! Maybe you can give it a try if you dont mind sweetless dessert

  33. Thank you for the wonderful recipe, made it tonight for dessert using some of my fresh raspberries we picked from a local farm, I used a whole cup of half & half instead of 1/2 milk & 1/2 cream and sprinkle with sugar before baking it to add a little crust on top and they turned out wonderful! I also serve vanilla ice cream on top. Will definitely make it again!!!
