Peach Clafouti

Here's a new-to-us treat that we discovered recently...a classic French country dessert.  It is rather like an oven-baked pancake...custardy and delicious...and called clafouti (kla-foo-tee).  It's great with berries...but our favorite is this peaches and cream version. 

  • 3-4 cups of sliced peaches
  • 1 cup whole milk (or light cream)
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  1. Generously butter a deep-dish 9" pie plate or a quiche pan.
  2. Place sliced peaches in dish. 
  3. Put remaining ingredients in a blender; blend until smooth and creamy. 
  4. Pour the mixture over the peaches. 
  5. Bake in a 375°F degree oven for 45 minutes or until Clafouti is puffed up and golden.
  6. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar (icing sugar) if desired.
  7. Let cool, but serve when it is slightly warm...topped with whipped cream.



Simple and delicious!

  6. I got to sample a piece...I'm not sure if there was any evidence left.
    It was as delicious as it looks.
    Great dessert after a hard day harvesting.

  7. Just baked this with fresh Niagara peaches from my neighbour and it looks delicious. I'm bringing it to the Elder/Spouse barbecue we're going to tonight. We'll see how everyone likes it!

  11. I used saskatoon berries instead of peaches - so easy and so delicious! This goes into my arsenal of "oh no, company's coming and I have nothing to serve" recipes.

  12. I have peaches! And I've always wanted to try making one of these! Clearly, it was meant to be: Let the weekend baking commence.

  13. Years ago, peaches made my list of "comfort foods" in the form of a peach cobbler on my birthday. This recipe called my name loud and clear to become my second peach birthday "cake" tomorrow. Yummy, I know, and EASY! Thanks.

  14. Beautiful! I made this last night, and my family & best friend loved it. I made mine in a fluted tart pan (the kind where the bottom slips out) and it was just great!
