Peach Clafoutis

by Hilary Gauntt on July 20, 2015

The peaches are gorgeous right now! I have been hearing how divine the ones at Costco are, so I brought home a flat to make the two peach centered recipes that have been calling to me. Kathy Santore served this Clafoutis (pronounced kla-foo-tee) at Mah Jongg recently and it was stunning. This is a traditional French dessert that combines fruit with a custardy cake; not too sweet and totally satisfying. This centuries old dish was usually made with black cherries, as in Julia Child’s classic recipe. Apples, pears, apricots; most any fruit will work!

Hard to believe that something so impressive looking is so simple to make; check out the short list of ingredients…

6 large eggs

2 cups milk

3/4 cup flour

1/2 cup sugar

1 Tbs. vanilla extract

2 peaches (no need to peel them)

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Thinly slice the peaches and layer in a 9-inch nonstick pie pan. Using a hand or stand mixer, combine the eggs and milk until the yolks are well-blended. Slowly add the flour until integrated, then add sugar and vanilla. The batter will be runny. Pour over the peaches Рthey will float up to the top of the batter. Cook for 1 hour or until the clafoutis is golden brown and set in the center. Top with a dusting of powdered sugar and fresh peach slices.
