This is a classic French dessert originating from the Alsace region. I first made this as a culinary student in my Classical European class. It is sweet, but light. The leftovers are perfect in the morning with a cappuccino.
- 1/2 C All-Purpose Flour
- 1/4 C + 1 T Sugar
- 3 Eggs
- 3 T Unsalted Butter, melted
- zest of 1 Lemon
- 1/4 C + 2 T Milk
- 3 C Mixed Berries
- Confectioners' Sugar, for dusting
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 9" gratin dish.
In a bowl, whisk flour, sugar + a pinch of salt. Whisk in eggs, butter & lemon zest until smooth. Add milk and whisk lightly for an additional 3 minutes.
Pour batter into gratin dish and top with berries. Bake for about 30 minutes, until clafoutis is set & golden. Let cool slightly and dust with confectioners sugar.
Short Cut: Mix the batter ahead of time and pop in the oven when your company arrives for dinner.
Alternative Method: Try using blackberries or strawberries.
