Plum Cherry Clafoutis

Plum Cherry Clafoutis

Since returning from France, I’d been dying to try a Clafoutis.  I had a bunch of fresh plums, so I decided to try a plum variety instead of the traditional cherry version.  However, at the last moment I realized that our cherry tree was full of fresh cherries, so I decided to throw some in also.  Like most of my recipes, this Clafoutis would work with many different types of fruit.  The end result was not too sweet and excellent served with some whipped topping, whipped cream or ice cream.  Continue reading for the recipe…

Ingredients:

  • 6 black plums, washed and cut into 12 wedges each
  • 1 cup pitted and sliced cherries [optional]
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/3 cup Splenda or white sugar
  • 1 can light evaporated milk + add whatever skim milk necessary to make 500ml (2cups) total of evaporated milk + Milk
  • 1.5 tablespoons vanilla
  • a pinch of salt
  • 0.5 cup whole wheat flour
  • 0.5 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • Whipped topping, whipped cream or ice cream for serving [optional]

Method:

  • Pre-heat the oven to 350F
  • Lightly grease a 8×12 pan (I think this recipe would work well in a variety of size pans – so use what you have, just don’t fill it TOO full)
  • Melt the butter in a large frying pan, and add the sliced plums and cherries.  Sprinkle with the brown sugar, and ‘stir fry’ over a medium heat for about five minutes.  Remove from heat.
  • In a sepeate bowl, wisk the eggs and splenda together until well mixed and creamy.  Add the milks, vanilla and salt and wisk until smooth.
  • Sift the two flours over the batter, and wisk to incorporate.
  • Take the slightly cooled plums and cherries, and carefully arrange them in the bottom of your greased baking pan.
  • Pour the batter evenly over the top of the cherries/plums
  • Bake for approximately 40-45 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.  Avoid openning the oven during the cooking time.
  • Serve with whipped topping, whipped cream or ice cream if desired
  • Enjoy!!!
