Our Peach & Raspberry Clafoutis (pronounced “klafuti”) is based on a traditional French dessert made with seasonal fresh fruit, covered in a thick custard-like batter, then baked.
Clafoutis is often served warm with a dusting of powdered sugar. I serve mine with the optional powdered sugar and a spoon!
Once again, I was thrilled to pick several baskets of red and black raspberries recently at Miller Farms Market and can’t wait to go back and pick blackberries too. The red raspberries were plump and ripe but the black raspberry bushes were thick and heavy with an enormous amount of fruit. I’ve saved some of those for a special dessert for the July 4th weekend. They also are growing a small amount of purple raspberries which are new to me. I only found about a dozen ripe purple raspberries but the bushes are new and may produce better next year.
Clafoutis (also referred to as a flan) is most often made with cherries and it’s my guess it was introduced to the United States by Julia Child. In her cookbook Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Julia offers several variations made with a variety of fruits and liquors. Even though I did not use her master Clafoutis recipe, I did study it and picked up a few tips and ideas.
This Peach & Raspberry Clafoutis is easy to throw together making it wonderful for company. Served slightly warm, the eggy custard melts in your mouth while the tart raspberries and sweet peaches compliment one another perfectly.
