Blueberry and Strawberry Clafouti

Blueberry and Strawberry Clafouti

Sharing is caring!

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, but I do remember loving the warm custard base and jammy fresh summer fruit. I was instantly hooked to this comfort dessert.  This recipe for blueberry and strawberry clafouti has quickly become my favorite version.  A great way to enjoy summer’s bounty.

 

 

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 clafouti 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 of whirls and you are set.  I like to put it into the oven for 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!

 

Recipe:  Blueberry Strawberry Clafouti

Ingredients:

1/2 pint strawberries, washed and cut in half
1-pint blueberries, washed
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
6 tablespoons flour
3 eggs
1/3 cup sugar
3 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
1 tablespoon  orange blossom water
powdered sugar for garnish

How To:

Wash fruit and let dry for about 20 minutes.

Melt the butter and set aside to cool.

Heat oven to 350.

Butter a shallow glass baking dish or individual ones.

After cutting the strawberries in half, scatter them over the bottom of the buttered dish.

Do the same with the blueberries.

Set aside.

In a blender mix rest of the ingredients and blend until combined;  about 3 minutes.

Pour over the fruit.

Set the dish on a cookie sheet, just-in-case it spills over a bit;  this will keep your clean oven clean.

Bake for 45 – 60 minutes.

The top will be golden and the center will only be slightly jiggly.

Let cool for 15 minutes before serving.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Serve.

Eat.

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 :)
