Incredible (and easy) fruit Clafouti... give this a try this summer
A friend made this a few weeks ago at my house for the dessert and it was so good, I've made it twice since, and will do it again on the 4th of July. 5 minutes to prep, so easy, yet tastes incredible. The final broil is key:
EASY BERRY CLAFOUTI
1 stick butter
1 ¼ cup sugar
1 Cup self rising flour
1 Cup milk
2 Cups berries (blackberry / raspberry mix works beautifully)
- Preheat over to 350. Butter a large gratin dish.
- Melt butter.
- Pour 1 C sugar and all the flour into a bowl. Whisk in milk, then melted butter.
- Pour batter into dish. Sprinkle berries on top. (They will sink a little but no need to push them down, the batter will rise around them. it will all work perfectly.)
- Sprinkle ¼ cup sugar on top.
- Bake at 350 for one hour. Sprinkle sugar on top 10 minutes before done. When ready to eat, put under the broiler for a few minutes to crisp up the top.
Great with cream poured over, or ice cream. Would work well with an cognac or some flavored liquor poured over as well.
This looks great, but I'm a bit confused about the sugar.
The recipe calls for 1 1/4 cups of sugar. One cup is going into the batter, and the other 1/4 cup goes on top. Does the 1/4 cup go on top of the batter before you put it in the oven(as it says in sprinkle sugar on top) or after it is in the oven, about 10 minutes before it is due to be done. You have the "sprinkle sugar" in two different places.
Years ago, I had and even easier one, but I lost the recipe. I would love to try this one for sure! I do not have self rising flour though, do you know what I can sub? Like would it be baking powder, and how much?
I have some black raspberries I picked today. Thanks. :)
This is a batter cobbler recipe I tweaked. The original was 1 cup AP flour, no almond meal.
1 stick butter, melted in 8" square or 9" round pan set into a cold oven set to 350
Whisk together 1 c white whole wheat flour, 1/4 c almond meal, 1 c white or brown sugar(or combo), 1.5 t baking powder, 1/4 t salt. Whisk in 1 c milk and optional 1/2 t vanilla or almond extract. Pour batter into melted butter, arrange 3 cups of fresh fruit (peeled slices or berries) evenly over the batter, sprinkle with 1 T sugar, bake 45-50 min until batter browns at edges. I often sub Splenda for half of the sugar in the batter.
