Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

A clafoutis with an strong fruit taste, thanks to a method of cooking which intensifies the fruits.  Delicious.  

 

 

Pour 6 ramekins:

 

  • 250g cherries
  • 250g strawberries
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 egg yolk plus 1 egg
  • 80g sugar
  • 22g cornflour

Clafoutis with red fruits

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 


  • Wash the fruit.  Remove the cherry stones and cut the strawberries in half.  Pour the honey into a frying pan, add the fruits and cook on a high heat for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.   The fruits will release their juice which you will set aside.  Watery fruits will release more water – so don’t cut them into pieces that are too small.   
  • Prepare the clafoutis mixture 
    Pour the eggs, sugar, cornflour, cream, 30 gr of fruit juice, milk and powdered almonds into a large bowl, Reserve any remaining juice.  Mix everything together thoroughly.  Pour 50 gr of clafoutis mixture and 80 gr of cooked fruits into each ramekin, mix gently. Sprinkle each ramekin with 1 teaspoon of icing sugar.
  • Bake for 40 minutes at 135° .
  • Serve cold.
  • Bon appétit!

This dessert can be prepared the day before.  Other seasonal fruits can be used;  you will not always obtain the same amount of juice from the cooked fruits, so it is important to measure it.  If there isn’t sufficient juice, then only add 15g de cornflour.

Recipe inspired by Bruno Besson, of the restaurant "La Taverne", in Castelnau (81).

Strawberry Clafoutis

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

A quick and easy recipe that’s delicious as well …

 

 

For 6 people: 

 

  • 500g strawberries
  • 2 tbsp kirsch
  • 1/4 lemon
  • 125 g caster sugar
  • 80g plain flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 25cl whole milk
  • 1 earthenware dish
  • butter to butter the dish
  • 2 level tbsp caster sugar

Choose small strawberries for a prettier effect.

  1. Rinse and hull the strawberries and place in a large bowl.  Sprinkle with 1 tbsp of caster sugar followed by the 2 tbsp of kirsch.  Mix and leave to macerate for about an hour.
  2. Heat the oven to 190°C.  Butter the dish. 
  3. Put the flour and sugar in a large bowl and mix together.  The addition of the sugar makes the flour more free-flowing, thereby avoiding lumps.
  4. Break the 4 eggs into the bowl and beat till you obtain a smooth batter.
  5. Add the milk little by little, mixing again with the beater.
  6. Arrange the strawberries on the base of the buttered dish.  If necessary cut the largest in half.
  7. Pour the batter into the dish and cook for 35 minutes.  The clafoutis is cooked when it is just golden.
  8. Sprinkle with remaining tbsp of sugar.
  9. Leave to cool and serve in the dish in which it was cooked.

This clafoutis should be eaten cold, decorated with a few slivered toasted almonds if you wish.

Variation :    use 6 ramekin dishes instead of a single dish - easier to serve and looks even prettier!  The cooking time for ramekins is 25 minutes instead of 35.

The original clafoutis is made with black Morello cherries.  As the cherry season is short, and they are not always available, you can add syrup of Amarena cherries to recapture the acidity of the Morello cherry.

  • 600g cherries
  • 125 g caster sugar
  • 80g flour
  • 4 eggs 
  • 25cl whole milk
  • 4 thyme flowers,
  • leaves removed
  • 1 sachet of sugared vanilla

Russian Clafoutis

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

Lighly sweetened and with a hint of acidity, this dessert is even better eaten warm.

 

 

For 4 ramekins:

 

  • 400g raspberries
  • 4 mint leaves
  • 70g caster sugar
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 30g plain flour 
  • 1 yoghurt
  • 125g crème fraîche

Russian Clafoutis

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


  1. Preheat oven to 160°
  2. Arrange a quarter of the raspberries in each ramekin.  Sprinkle with 40gr caster sugar, followed by the finely chopped mint leaves.  Place in the centre of the oven till the raspberries are hot.
  3. Separate the eggs, put the yolks in a large bowl to which you add the remaining sugar and beat till thick and creamy.  Add the yoghurt and cream, mixing well, then, using a spatula, the sifted flour, a small amount at a time.
  4. Whip the egg whites till stiff and, using a spatula, carefully fold into the mixture.
  5. Divide the mixture between the ramekins and cook for approx 40 mins towards the top of the oven.  They are done when golden on top.
    NB     It is normal for them to rise during cooking and to subside when removed from the oven. In each ramekin there will be equal parts sponge and fruit.
  6. Sprinkle with a little sugar to serve.
