I have said it before and I'll say it again: we have peaches coming out of our ears. So that means I have been busy baking up a storm using all of the peaches!
Now, I have been wanting to try to make a clafoutis because it sounds so fancy. It is pronounced kla-foo-tee. But guess what? It is SUPER EASY to make. I feel like the name is deceiving for that reason!
Now, for the recipe, I simply used Julia Child's recipe from Mastering the Art of French Cooking. She used other fruit but I substituted peaches. It was tasty!
- 1 1/2 cups milk (I used 2%)
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar, divided
- 3 eggs
- 1tbsp vanilla
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup flour
- 3-4 ripe peaches, sliced
- Preheat oven to 350F
- In a blender, blend the milk, 1/3 cup of sugar, eggs, vanilla, salt, and flour.
- Then, pour about a 1/4 inch layer of the matter into a lightly buttered baking dish (a cast iron pan works the best!). Place over heat for 2-3 minutes on the stove top until the batter sets up in the pan.
- Remove from the heat and then spread the peaches evenly over the batter. Pour the remaining batter on top. Sprinkle the remaining 1/3 cup sugar on top of that (I only sprinkled part of it as it seemed like a lot of sugar).
- Bake at 350F for 45 minutes to 1 hour. The clafoutis is done when it is puffed and brown. Plunge a knife in the center and if it comes out clean you are down!
- Serve warm, sprinkled with powdered sugar.
If you have never had a clafoutis it is kind of like a pancake/flan batter with fruit cooked in the middle.
You can impress your friends by making this dish - it sounds so fancy but it is SO EASY to make that a beginner could make it!
