adapted from  :; (delicious & yummy)..
tried by  :      zaralovebaking...

Ingredients :    (serves :  4-6)

   1  cup  whole milk
   3  eggs  (I use grade A)
1/2  cup  sugar
    1  tsp  vanilla extract
    2  tbsp  butter  -  melted, plus more for buttering baking dish
1/2  cup  all-purpose flour
    2  cups  of fruit  (of your choice)
Powdered sugar for dusting  (optional)

Method :

1.  Preheat oven to 450'F/230'C.  In a large bowl, combine the milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla extract and the 2 tablespoon melted butter.  Whisk until the sugar dissolved, then add the flour and continue whisking until smooth and free of lumps.  (Strain with a strainer if possible).

2.  Butter a baking dish, pie pan or ramekins and pour in the batter.

3.  Top with your favourite fruit and bake until the clafoutis is nicely puffy and golden; about 35-40 minutes.

4.  To serve :  It's best eaten warm, so allow the clafoutis to cool a bit before serving.  Dust with powdered sugar (optional)...

Fruit Variations :


INFO  :   Clafoutis is an easy to make baked dessert originating from the Limousin region of France.  This flan-like dessert is most commonly made with black cherries, but is delicious with just about any type of fruit, fresh or preserved (in which case it would be referred to as "flaugnarde").  (You can also buttered the baking dish dan sprinkle with coarse sugar - I did that)...
