Blueberry and Strawberry Clafouti

Don’t you love saying “Clafouti”  I love saying it … clafouti, clafouti, clafouti.  Not only is it fun to say but it is fun to make as well as eat.  I cannot remember the first time I had it.  I do remember loving the warm custard base and jammy fresh summer fruit. I was hooked.

Clafouti as well as galettes are a staple summertime dessert in our house.  I tend to whip one up whenever I have some overripe stone fruit laying around.  I particularly love late summer apricots with an almond flavoring.  Bliss.  I have never considered adding berries.  Don’t ask me why; because, I cannot even begin to answer that question.  Then my friend Tracy whipped up a strawberry claufouti and provoked the baking goddess in me.

The other evening I had some leftover blueberries and a near overripe basket of strawberries sitting on the counter, just begging to be eaten.  Instead, I pulled out my trusty clafouti recipe and went to work.  Don’t be scared to tackle what looks like a complicated recipe.  A clafouti is really easy to make.  Just put all of the ingredients, except for the fruit, into a blender.  Give a couple whirls and you are set.  I like to put it into the oven about 30 minutes before serving, then you will have a lovely warm dessert to serve your guests, or to just enjoy yourself.  Makes a wonderful breakfast companion with a cup of hot coffee as well.  That is if you even have leftovers.

Happy Clafouti’n!

    OK, you know there’s one of us in every crowd, don’t you? Clafouti can only be made with cherries. If you make it with other fruit, it’s called flaugnarde. Either way, it’s delicious, and I’m saving this recipe for the next time I go to pick blueberries!

  3. Oooh! I provoked your inner baking goddess!! Love that. So glad you tried a clafouti with strawberries. I’m totally going to add blueberries next time!

    oh and hey! Did you make that table? I LOVE the color.

  4. Honey, I not only enjoy saying ‘clafouti’ but I also find immense pleasure out of eating them!

    Thinking of you often + love you long time xx

  5. clafouti clafouti finally a word that rhymes with patootie! hahahah! I agree with Charissa must convert to gluten free and I’ll be diving into this deliciousness :)

  6. Would you believe if I told you I’ve never made clafoutis yet! I know, shocking!! I shouldn’t probably confess this publicly. :) But I also have to confess that after seeing your photos and I’m gonna make it immediately!

  7. GORGEOUS! Seriously, that looks amazing, which sounds like such a generic comment to leave on a blog, but I can’t think of a more creative way of expressing it.

  8. Your photos are getting more incredible every week. I love this. Gorgeous!

    I’d never even heard of clafouti as three syllables before. Thank you! The word sounds nutty, but the recipe looks divine! This I will try as soon as I am back in Beijing. x

  10. I think I just cried a little bit. It just looks… so beautiful! I can’t wait to give this one a try one day!

  11. Remind me to tell you sometime the conversation Sam and I had about how to pronounce “clafoutis”. Big debate. BEAUTIFUL photo! xo.

  12. hi denise! i recognize the wood tabletop ;) your claufouti looks awesome — i’ve been seeing it all over other blogs and maybe that’s a sign to try it for myself. nice meeting you last weekend, and thanks again for all of your help!

  13. Clafouti, clafouti, clafouti… sooooo delicious. I finally made it and I love it!!! Thank you for sharing the recipe!

  14. What an exquisite looking clafouti you have there :) and yes i did just mentally say it far too many times so it has lost all meaning! This looks like a wonderful basic recipe to meddle around with, but the blueberry strawb combo would be hard to beat by the looks of your gorgeous photos :)

  15. Sarka, I am so glad you tried it out. Easy isn’t it? I love the recipe ….. :)

  16. Athena – LOL! I am making a cool green one now. Cannot wait to shoot w/it. Have you been shooting? Share them in the flickr – would love it. And, on a cooking note, you should try this recipe. Very easy to make and pretty to take photos of. :)

  17. It is the season, Jeff. Do try it out. You will love it!

  18. Thanks El – really appreciate hearing that from someone who is so talented! :)
