Clafouti is a French dessert made by baking fruit in pancake batter. Lil’ bun and I decided to use delicious blackberries for ours but you can use any fruit you like. Anyways, calafouti is typically baked in a circular pan but lil’ bun and I were too lazy to dig up our cake pan so we used a square baking pan instead. The batter for this dessert is runnier than typical pancake batter and you should probably pour the batter through a sieve before putting it into the pan to avoid flour clumps. Lil’ bun and I enjoyed the creamy custard-like texture of it because it reminded us of creme brulee minus the caramel topping of course. Even though the two of us liked the dessert quite a bit, brother deer wasn’t too big of a fan because he doesn’t like eggs and thought that you could taste too much of it.
2 cups blackberries
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon oil
1/2 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4cup milk of choice
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup whipped cream for topping (optional)
icing sugar for topping (optional)
Here’s a little guidance:
- Whisk the egg, sugar and oil in a bowl until combined. Mix in the milk and vanilla then sift in the flour and salt. Stir everything together until combined.
2. Spread your blackberries out on a lined cake pan and pour your batter on top.
- Bake at 375F for 30 – 40 minutes until golden brown.
4. Let cool for 8 minutes for everything to set before removing from pan.
5. Top with whipped cream or icing sugar if you’re feeling indulgent. Munch!
