Clafoutis aux Framboise

Clafoutis aux Framboise. The name sounds so elegant, but this classic French dessert is easily made with the most basic of ingredients. Originally from Limousin in central southwest France, clafoutis are traditionally prepared with cherries but most any fruit can be substituted. Today we’re are using beautiful fresh raspberries.

Clafoutis aux Framboise

1 cup milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup of sugar
2/3 cup flour
2 large eggs
1 egg yolk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups raspberries

Preheat your galley oven to 375º.

Butter a 10″ pie pan and place our raspberries in the pan.

In a large bowl, blend the rest of the ingredients until smooth.

Pour the batter over the raspberries.

Place in your preheated oven for about 45 minutes or until puffed up and golden.

It is a gorgeous work of culinary art when you first take it out of the oven….beautifully craggy and puffed up. But don’t be deflated as you watch it plummet into the pie pan seconds after it hits the cool air. It will still be delicious!
