Cherries may be traditional, but we'll make a clafouti out of any fruit that looks fresh and delicious! This creamy baked custard is so simple to throw together and makes a great dinner party dessert. What's even better? The leftovers make an incredible breakfast! Straight out of the oven, clafouti is still soft, milky, and luscious. After a night in the fridge, the custard has set into something like a thick pancake - smooth and slightly chewy. Amazing. We're looking forward to trying these recipes as both dessert and breakfast! • Plum Clafouti from Gourmet Magazine - You macerate these plums in Armagnac before mixing them with the batter. • Rhubarb Raspberry Clafouti from La Tartine Gourmande - Rhubarb. Awesome. We might even skip the raspberries! • Strawberry Clafouti from NPR - A recipe from Clotilde Dusoulier from Chocolate & Zucchini! • Cherry Clafouti from Saveur Magazine - Traditional and always good, especially as fresh cherries come into season. • Roasted Pear and Cinnamon Clafouti from Epicurious - We love the idea of adding a dash of cinnamon to the mix. Oh goodness, we can't wait for more fruit to come into season! What's your favorite kind of clafouti? Related: What Are the Best Recipes to Make in a Cast Iron Skillet? (Image: Romulo Yanes/Gourmet)
