Fruit in its purest form makes for the ultimate breakfast or satisfying dessert. But there are times that we crave something a bit sexier, a bit zestier, and a bit carbier. And in those moments, we grab our baking kitchen essentials and whip up a clafoutis.
A classic French dessert, clafoutis is made by pouring a sweet batter, similar to pancake, waffle or crepe batter, over fruit of your choice. The flan-like batter then bakes around the fruit and creates a wobbly, airy, custard-like texture. While typically made with pitted cherries, the clafoutis batter is a blank canvas for almost any fruit from peaches to plums, mango to figs or apples and pears.
What we love about Clafoutis is that you can bake one basically in any oven-safe vessel you have on hand. A pie dish, baking dish, casserole dish, ramekins, tart pan, loaf pan, cast-iron or skillet. When baked, the clafoutis puffs up like a petite soufflé, golden edges with a custard center.

Oh So Pretty Raspberry Clafoutis
The classic French dessert, clafoutis is the perfect mix of custard and cake. Bursting with flavour, this wholesome dessert is made by engulfing your favourite fruit with a sweet batter, baking it and watching the cake rise around the fruit. Top this wobbly and decadent treat with icing sugar or serve with creamy and cool ice cream.
