Clafoutis aux Framboises

By • February 17, 2010 • 12 Comments



Author Notes: I was taught to make this dessert when I was 7 years old. It is so simple that my husband can make it, that should say it all. It is somewhat healthy, quite low maintenance (1 blender and 1 glass pie pan) and can be made year round with different fruit. I love the raspberry clafoutis because all you need is a bag or two of frozen fruit and you are set! I try to make it the night before I want to serve it. Once the clafoutis sets the consistency is perfect! - Culinista AnnouchkaCulinista Annouchka

Food52 Review: WOW! Not only was this one of the best desserts I've ever had, it is the easiest dessert I've ever made! The whole process took less than 5 minutes and the fact that it's best served at room temperature made it even easier. The end result was a beautiful dessert that made a lovely presentation at the table and was greeted by loads of oohs and ahhs. The custard-like texture was simple, the raspberries gave it a nice zing, and best part, it was not too sweet. I'll make this over and over again! - Michelle MeeksMichelle Meeks

Serves 6

  • 5 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of flour
  • 3/4 cups milk (i put low fat not non fat)
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons of melted butter
  • 1 cup of cream (whipping cream)
  • 1/4 cup of Grand Marnier (or other fruity liquor)
  • 1 package of frozen raspberries (about 12 oz)
  1. Preheat the oven at 375F. Butter a glass of pie dish and put the frozen raspberries in the pan (while you make the rest it will defrost) - you can also use any fruit you want (traditionally with cherries, but it can be great with fresh apricots, pears ect…)
  2. In a blender put the eggs, sugar, flour, milk, salt, vanilla & the butter. Mix well for 20 seconds, scrapping the sides
  3. Then add the cream, the Grand Marnier and mix again for 20 seconds/ Pour the batter in the pan and in the over for about 45 min (check it by putting a kniff and if its clean then it done). I would let the clafoutis rest for at least a few hours and overnight if possible, its better at room temperature than out of the oven.

Thanks for the opportunity to test your recipe! I have to tell you that I work with a lovely lady from Switzerland and she loves Clafoutis! She asked me to make it and bring it in for her to try. I was reluctant because she has made clafoutis he whole life. I made it with cherries this time and her exact words were, "This tastes like Europe. I MUST have the recipe. It is far better than mine!" Thanks again. This will be a staple at my house!

I had the most amazing pear and ginger clafouti at Cafe Fanny one afternoon recently, while waiting for my car to be serviced up the street. (Lucky me, my favorite mechanic's shop is about two blocks away. My source for the best red and white wine vinegar you can get anywhere, the Oak Barrel winemaking shop, is about two blocks on the other side of it, so it's always a treat to take my car into the shop!) I look forward to using this basic recipe to reproduce the one I had at Cafe Fanny, late this summer when I can get local pears again. I have some pear and ginger liqueur that I made a few months ago, which will be perfect for this. Actually, now that I think about it, I have some pears in a ginger syrup that I put up last summer, which I could drain and use. Thank you so, so much for sharing this recipe. (By the way, I'd love to know what your mother's other go-to recipes are!) I can see that this one will be a go-to favorite for me, too, for sure!! ;o)

This all sounds wonderful! Have never made a clafouti but am adding it to the EVER EXPANDING new things to try list. AntoniaJames, when you have time would you post your pear and ginger liqueur recipes? The syrups too? I would love to try them. Maybe there is a homemade boozy treat category coming up??

Yes, I've made it with pears and cranberries as well as with figs and plums, its always delicious. The baking time might change depending on the water content of the fruit. I have also substituted spelt for the flour and it was great.
