Clafoutis, sometimes in Anglophone countries spelled clafouti, is a baked French dessert of black cherries arranged in a buttered dish and covered with a thick flan-like batter. The clafoutis is dusted with powdered sugar and served lukewarm.
A traditional Limousin clafoutis contains pits of the cherries.. According to baking purists, the pits release a wonderful flavor when the dish is cooked. If the cherry pits are removed prior to baking, the clafoutis will be milder in flavor.Now, how can you resist wanting to try a taste of this? I didn't have any cherries but I did have some blueberries so I substituted them. I followed this recipe from the Nourishing Gourmet and really liked this light dessert. It could even be served as a breakfast cake and was quick to put together and bake. Next I want to try this recipe for Chicken Curry Clafouti, I still don't know how to pronounce it!
