STRAWBERRY CLAFOUTIS

386

Clafoutis is one of those desserts which looks like you’ve labored for hours over it but actually takes minutes to make. Originally made with cherries, I love adding whatever fruits I have on hand to make it. Peaches, apricots and all kinds of berries work really well! But strawberries are my favorite. I love leaving them whole so that every bite has the juiciness of strawberries.

It has a gorgeous custard-like base, but a little denser and a little more cake like. The batter can be made in a blender, and I use my KitchenAid Hand Blender to make it because cleanup becomes so easy. Pour everything into a cast iron pan or any oven safe dish and you are all set to go. It’s really such an elegant, crowd pleaser that it’ll make everyone go wow!
