Clafouti: Help!

I love Suzanne Goin and make her recipes all the time. One I cannot seem to master is her Cranberry Walnut Clafouti:


I have tried twice, doing it in 6 smaller versions rather than one large one. I use individual cast iron pots (see photo.) They bake beautifully but then a minute after they come out of the oven, they collapse. They taste terrific still, which is why I keep trying, but they look terrible. (The photo is just as they are starting to fall. I should have taken another one once they fell in on themselves.


I follow the recipe although I confess I am not a baker and don't measure everything to the tiniest degree. Perhaps there are too many walnuts and cranberries? Any ideas?

  1. You are doing nothing wrong, that's what they do.

    1. They always collapse. They don't stay puffed. You're doing it right.

      1. Well, that's good to know, thanks!
