blueberry clafouti

Its Dessert Week at iambaker!  This week I am sharing five incredible and unique fall desserts that are a perfect alternative to pumpkin pie and would be an ideal addition to any Thanksgiving gathering!

Classic Blueberry Clafouti


I saved the best for last this week.  Blueberries are one of my favorite fruits and this dessert is such an excellent way to indulge.

Now, I have to be honest.  I have no idea what a clafouti was before I saw this recipe on McCormick Gourmet’s site.  I had to look it up just to see how to pronounce it! (and I still don’t know thankyouverymuch)

But what I learned is that it’s a rustic baked dessert from France.

Its basically this:  berries arranged in a dish the covered in a sweet batter then covered in powder sugar and sometimes cream.

It is pretty much the perfect dessert and I totally get why every aspiring pastry chef wants to train in France.

They do dessert right.

  2. Michelle says

    In the ingredient list it says 1/4 c sugar but in the directions it says 1/2 c. Which one do I put with the berries? I’m making strawberry. Is the ginger necessary? I’m not a big fan. Thanks! It looks great!

  3. Natalie says

    I’m wondering what Michelle commented earlier. The recipe calls for 1/4 cup plus 1TB, but the instructions say to add 1/2 cup of the sugar with the berries. Should it be 1/8 cup??
