A fast dessert using everyday ingredients I know you’ll have in your fridge.
A clafoutis (pronounced Clah-foo-tee) is a classic French dessert using cherries and an eggy batter. When you replace the cherries with another fruit, the name of the dessert changes from a clafoutis to a flaugnarde (pronounced Floohn-yard) . I had some plums given to me by my sister and decided to use them in a plum flaugnarde.
It may be a difficult name to pronounce, but it’s not a difficult dessert to prepare. The plums add a subtle tartness which works beautifully with the sweet egg custard. If you don’t have plums don’t despair. This can be adapted to use other stone fruit, or even berries.
