Cherry Clafoutis with Vanilla Custard


Clafoutis ​[klafuti] is a baked french dessert, traditionally made using cherries. Fresh cherries are only in season once a year, so this is a perfect pudding for the festive season! It’s probably one of the easiest desserts you will make, plus it will impress your guests,  pleasing to both the eyes and taste buds. Sweet, fresh cherries are baked in a simple batter of milk, sugar, eggs, and flour.

Fun fact; Clafoutis originated in a south-central region in France called Limousin. ‘Clafir’ means ‘to fill’, so in essence, you are filling a dish with fruit and batter.


Additional Notes

How do I store the custard?

If you have made the custard in advance;

  • Allow the custard to cool
  • It is best to store it in a glass bowl or jar, with a layer of clingfilm just touching the top of the custard. Make sure it touches the surface of the custard to prevent the milk proteins from forming a thin crust on top when refrigerated.

To reheat the custard: Carefully over low heat while constantly stirring and serving.

How long can I store the custard?

It won’t last long enough to keep, it’s too delicious! BUT, if you do have leftovers, you can refrigerate it for up to a week.

Can I use other fruit?

Yes, in Summer you can use fresh berries instead of cherries. We recommend blueberries. You can also make a plum or apricot clafoutis, and get creative with flavours if you’re experimenting away from the traditional clafoutis.

Can I make this clafoutis recipe gluten-free?

You can substitute the flour with an all-purpose gluten-free flour mix, i.e: the Health Connection Gluten-Free Flour mix found in our health department. (Please note that we have not tested this)
