Blueberry Clafoutis


Well I’m clearly on a blueberry kick! I made a Blueberry Clafoutis last night for dessert on date night. A clafoutis is a baked french dessert of fruit, traditionally cherries, covered in a thin batter and baked. If not cherries, its technically called a “Flaugnarde,” but since that’s the ugliest sounding word I’ve ever heard, I’ll keep calling it a Clafoutis. 

Blueberry Clafoutis

1 pint blueberries

1 lemon zested

1 T white granulated sugar

2 T Butter

Saute your blueberries with 2 T of butter, 1 T of sugar, and the zest of a lemon. Cook on medium heat for 2 minutes.

Batter

1 cup flour

2 eggs

2 T white granulated sugar

pinch salt

1/2 t Vanilla extract

3/4 cup milk 

  • Blend all ingredients until combined smooth.

  • When your batter is whipped up and blueberries have softened, pour the batter evenly over all the berries. Cook for a moment and then place into a 425 degree oven for 18-20 minutes. Remove when golden brown and dust with powdered sugar.

This dessert is best served warm with a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream. I served it with maple whipped cream.

1 T maple syrup

1/4 cup heavy cream

  • Beat the two ingredients together until light and fluffy. Serve immediately. 

I hope you try this dessert out! So simple, yet still impressive, and absolutely delicious!

 

Cheers!
