Clafoutis with Blueberries and Lemon

Fabulous taste and texture and so easy to make - Clafoutis with Blueberries and Lemon

For days I have been craving this sweet, silky smooth dish I saw a while back. Today I finally indulged myself and it was so satisfying.

I used a small 17cm round oven dish to make a single serving (that I ended up devouring in one go straight from the baking dish). You can increase the amounts; for a 25 cm dish I would suggest tripling the amounts.

Ingredients
(found on the blog fooddoodles)
Serves 1

butter
50g-100g frozen (or fresh) blueberries
1 egg
15-20g sugar
60ml milk
30g whole wheat flour
a dash of Vanilla extract
1/3 of a lemon grated
optional for serving: a tsp lemon juice, whipped cream, icing sugar

 

Recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 175C (350F).
  2. 2.     Prepare a cast iron skillet, or baking dish by greasing it with butter and sprinkling with sugar.  (I rubbed my dish with oil. This meant I could not remove the clafoutis from the dish. As I made a single serving I this was not a big problem but I did lose out on that lovely crust)
  3. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together eggs, salt and sugar.
  4. Add in milk, flour, vanilla and lemon zest and mix well.
  5. Place the (frozen) berries in the bottom of the prepared dish and pour the egg mixture over top.
  6. Place in the oven and bake 45 – 60 minutes (depending on the size of your dish). The dish is done when the center is set.
  7. Allow to cool down slightly.

Tips & Variations

Next time I will make a clafoutis using frozen cherries and see if I can make them in a muffin tin….Any other suggestions are very welcome!
