Plum Clafoutis or some guilty summer pleasures

Tuesday, 2 July 2019


I really want to share this yummy recipe as it is one of the few new experiments I have tried out this summer and I swear it is deliciously tasty. And if you feel too guilty like me you can always go sweat it out in the gym afterwards. To be honest I find home made pies and cookies much healthier than the ones sold in shops.
Hope you enjoy this one!

Serves 4-6
Prepare 15 minutes ( yes! only 15 min to prep..wow)
Cook 45 minutes ( where you can read a book, chill out in the garden with a glass of wine or simply work out)

Ingredients


  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 150ml milk
  • 100ml double cream
  • 4 eggs
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 30g plain flour
  • 20g unsalted butter
  • 1tbsp light brown soft sugar ( tip: I use that as a lip scrub too )
  • 6 large plums
  • 1 1/2 tsp allspice
  • double cream ( to serve)
  • icing sugar (to dust)

Preparation

  1. Heat the oven to 180 C. In a blender, whizz together the vanilla, milk, double cream, eggs, caster sugar, flour and a pinch of salt. Set aside for 20 minutes or so to allow the flour to swell in the liquid.
  2. Meanwhile, grease a wide, shallow 1.25 - litre ovenproof dish with butter. Sprinkle in the brown sugar. Halve and stone the plums and spread evenly in the dish. Sprinkle with the allspice and turn to coat, ending with the plums cut side down. Roast for 10 minutes.
  3. Remove from the oven and immediately  pour over the batter. Cook in the middle of the oven for 30-35 minutes, until risen and golden. Serve hot, with spoonfuls of double cream and a dusting of icing sugar.
Bon Apetit!
