Plum Clafoutis

As you will remember, my friend Arthur gave me a bag full of beautiful, ripe plums yesterday.  The first thing I did was photograph them.  The second thing I did was Google 'plum recipes'.



One recipe suggestion kept popping up... Plum Clafoutis!  Now, those of you who are foodies will have already had a clafoutis or two, but I've never even SEEN one.  This was uncharted territory for me.



I certainly had sufficient plums and the remaining ingredients are store cupboard staples so I decided to give clafoutis a go.  



If you would like to bake this seasonal treat, CLICK HERE FOR THE RECIPE. It's quick, easy, and only requires ingredients you will already have in your pantry.



Now you must excuse me,  I have a bowl of warm clafoutis to eat.  Oh, did I say, this IS my breakfast but most normal folks would have this for dessert.  I poured some cream over my bowlful - but vanilla ice cream would be delicious, too!

  1. Lovely - I've a Paul Hollywood recipe for clafoutis that I've been meaning to try, so maybe I will now. I can also recommend cobbler if you need another plum recipe idea. And I am with you - desserts were made for breakfast!

  2. Haha for breakfast, it's delicious any time of the day I think. As I always have many plums in July/august, claffoutis is my favourite easy recipe.
