This Clafoutis Dessert tastes amazing but should be made to be enjoyed immediately by friends and family. I make this easy dessert all year round and friends beg me for the recipe! We also enjoy Piggy Pie dessert when I need a fast and delicious dessert!
What is Clafoutis?
It’s a classic rustic baked dessert in France, and there are many adaptations of it here in the USA. It is made by adding a sweet batter to fresh fruit and then baking. The sweet pancake-like batter creates a light, pudding-like texture—almost like a custard. The amounts of fruits you can use are endless… it’s even perfect with sauteed apples or plums in the fall and winter!
Blueberries are one of my favorite fruits and this dessert is such an excellent way to indulge any time of year.
One fun aspect of clafoutis is that it can be served for breakfast! It is similar to a pancake and has a very similar amount of sugar. You can skip the confectioner’s sugar dusting and add more fresh fruit on top after it has baked. 🙂
This is pretty much the perfect dessert and I totally get why every aspiring pastry chef wants to train in France. They do dessert right.
How to Store Clafoutis
You can store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. When ready to enjoy again, reheat in a 300°F oven until warmed through. Serve with fresh whipped topping or more fresh fruit. However, I do recommend eating it the same day that you make it so I will often prepare this dish for a party! People love to see you put this together and “ooh and ahh” as it is removed from the oven. So fun!
