Plum Clafoutis is one of the easiest desserts I have ever made. It sounds like it would be complicated or difficult. But let me tell you – Cut, toss, blend, bake is all you need to do to enjoy this delicious dish! Easy recipes is where it’s at & this one definitely fits that description! You could even save time & use pre-cut frozen fruit too.
Just look how pretty it is! I love making recipes that look like you spent all day in the kitchen. But with this one it couldn’t be farther from the truth. Clafoutis is a baked French dessert of fruit, traditionally black cherries that are arranged in a buttered dish and covered with a thick flan-like batter. Since I had an abundance of plums on hand I decided to use those instead. But I can’t wait to try it with cherries later on. The clafoutis is dusted with powdered sugar and served lukewarm, sometimes with cream or my favorite ice cream. I keep trying to pass this one off as a breakfast – sort of like a coffee cake. But the family keeps assuring me that it’s definitely a dessert.
