Ingredients

  • 2 tsp butter, unsalted and softened
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 & 1/4 cups milk
  • 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups blueberries
  • powdered sugar, for dusting (optional)

Instructions

Preparing Equipment:

  • Preheat your oven to 180 °C (350°F).
  • Grease your pie dish generously with butter and set aside. (This recipe needs a pie dish that accommodates at least 1 quart of batter.)

Making the Batter:

  • Using a blender, combine eggs, flour, sugar, vanilla extract, and milk.  Mix until you get a smooth, combined batter.
  • Pour the batter into your greased dish.
  • Add the blueberries, placing them evenly into the batter.

Baking the Clafoutis:

  • Place the dish in the middle of the oven.
  • Bake your blueberry clafoutis for 45 to 50 minutes or until the top has turned golden. You can also check by inserting a toothpick to see if its already cooked inside.

Serving your Berry Clafoutis:

  • Take the dish out of the oven and let cool down for about 5 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if preferred.
  • Slice and serve with ice cream or whipped cream on top.

Notes

  • Cook's Tip #1: You can also use pitted cherries, blackberries, plums - or you can try using any of your favorite fresh fruits.  This basic clafoutis recipe always delivers.
  • Cook's Tip #2: Either a hand mixer or a whisk is a good alternative if you don't have a stand blender. You just need to make sure that you mix everything evenly.
  • Cook's Tip#3: Use a heavy and thick pan, like cast-iron or ceramic dish, to keep the heat well.
  • Variation #1: Almond extract works as a great alternative to vanilla extract. Feel free to use liquor as well if you're up for it.
