Raspberry Clafoutis

_MG_3334

The recipe for this amazing dish came from here, although I do recommend using lower dishes for clafoutis, and not only because they photograph better and have that nice – the food is overflowing with deliciousness type look, but also because it cooks a bit more smoothly. However this recipe was a rip-roaring success, and I do suggest using vanilla ice-cream or icing sugar on the top as those two flavours would compliment the dish very well. I had a few favourable reviews for the creme fraiche, but I don’t know if I had enough to warrant recommending it as the sole add-on.

Also I couldn’t find any mixed berry punnets at my local grocery store so I stuck solely to raspberries. It was a good choice because I still have some Fragoli left over and as the recipe suggested I soaked the berries in the berry liqueur and it gave them a very wholesome flavour. I’m going to miss my Fragoli when it’s gone, but due to limited space I’m told I have to use up what I have before I go out and buy more.

  1. 😄 Merci! I was actually pretty nervous about this one because it was put into one large dish instead of several low ramekins. I thought it might not cook properly in the middle before the outside was set, but it turned out to be delicious. ^_^
