Whenever I watch any baking shows on television, it always happens, I see them make something that I just have to try! So, when Anita brought me some beautiful blueberries, I knew that I wanted to make a French recipe called Clafoutis!
A clafoutis is actually a type of custard that is baked with any fruit added that you can imagine. It reminds be of what we all a Dutch Puff Pancake, or a type of souffle, because it puffs up in the oven and is gorgeous, (but then it falls, lol). When we do a Dutch pancake, we add the fruit toppings after it comes out of the oven, but the fruit is baked right in a clafoutis.
This recipe is surprisingly quick and easy to mix up! There will be lots of ooos and aahhs when it comes out of the oven.
I added sugared blueberries and tiny strawberries to decorate the top.
This recipe is definitely a great way to enjoy summer berries.
One thing I did to enhance the blueberries was to use a couple of drops of lemon essential oil in the batter of the custard. Also to make the sugared berries, I rolled them in lemon juice and then in granulated sugar. Those touches of lemon worked so well to brighten up the flavors of the clafoutis! I purchase my oils fromDoTerra. I trust their oils to be pure enough to use in my recipes.
Here is the super simple recipe! You can substitute any fruit instead of blueberries. On the Summer Bake-Off that I was watching, someone made it using mangoes and someone else used marinated cherries. So, give it a try and tell me how you liked it! Just click the recipe and you will get a printable pdf file.
