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.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 C All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/4 C + 1 T Sugar
  • Salt
  • 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

Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 9" gratin dish.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.
