|When I mentioned a clafoutis, Bob headed up the hill and brought back a bucket of berries.|
We've enjoyed things like cobblers, crisps, and persimmon pudding. There's not much I like better than spending a morning searching through recipes and then adding my own spin.
A few years ago, we added clafoutis (pronounced clafuti) to the mix.
|Fruit and custard - not too sweet, just enough.|
Easy? I threw this together in less than 10 minutes this afternoon.
Here's the recipe:
|Measuring out the berries is almost as messy as picking them.|
Preheat oven to 325 F and butter shallow pie pan. Set aside.
Mix the following
1 C milk or half and half
1/2 C sugar
2 t vanilla
2 T melted butter
1/2 C flour
|Chopped kumquats were the perfect addition.|
-Chop up 2 kumquats, leaving behind the center.
-Measure out 2 C mulberries
-Drop the fruit evenly onto the batter.
-Bake for 35 to 40 minutes.
-Dust with 10X confectioner's sugar.
|Ready to go into the oven.|
|Cooling before sifting sugar over the top and serving.|
It's good warm plain or with whipped cream.
It's good cold for breakfast. It's just plain good!
This really brought out the flavor of the mulberries, and if I'd had lemon I probably would have used some zest, BUT I'm really glad there were only kumquats on hand. They were perfect.
You can substitute just about any fruit, and instead of vanilla, use a splash of flavored liqueur like raspberry, cassis, or even peach brandy. The possibilities are endless.
