Baked French Dessert

Blueberry Clafoutis
Clafoutis Or Clafouti, is a baked French dessert made of cherries, arranged and baked in pancake-like batter. This simple yet so delicious recipe is traditionally made with cherries or prunes. Fruity berries like blueberry or black berry and even dehydrated prunes (dried plums) go perfect in Clafoutis. I have used fresh blueberries for this recipe. You can also use dried or frozen berries. Clafoutis batter is very easy to make. Clafoutis batter mixes up very easily in just one bowl. It has very simple ingredients, so as long as you have berries on hand, you can literally start making Clafoutis in moment’s notice. This warm and comforting dessert with hint of Cognac can make any evening special. I specially recommend this dessert for special Valentine evening. This valentine day, impress your valentine with this easy to make, easy on pocket scrumptious dessert.

    4. Bake the Clafoutis untill puffy and golden (about 30 minutes). If using individual baking dishes then serve warm in the same dish after dusting with powdered sugar. Or you can invert Clafoutis in serving tray, dust with powdered sugar and serve warm. Enjoy!!!
Savita's Notes:
I used single serving small baking trays to make individual Clafoutis since at my home no one wants to share his Clafoutis with anyone else. For charm of valentine day, you can make one big Clafoutis and enjoy sharing it with your valentine.
