Clafoutis, the French custard

I have to admit that when I first tried this recipe, I was looking for a French cookie with a cool name and didn’t expect a lot from it. I would have liked it if it turned out to be bad, only because it was French. Fortunately, it became great (and very easy to prepare!). But let’s say a few words about the magnificent clafoutis. Originally it was made from black cherries with their seeds left inside, but nowadays you can use basically any kind of fruit you want such as red-currants, raspberries, bluberries, sour cherries or regular cherries.
Here is the recipe of this very easy, but wonderful dessert.

– 3 eggs
– a pinch of salt
– 6 tablespoons of sugar
– 2 bags of vanilla sugar
– 8 tablespoons of flour
– 3 dl milk
– 30 dkg fruit

What to do next?
First of all, clean the fruit you chose and then let them dry until you’ll need them. Set your oven for 180 degrees. Now take a bowl and put the eggs, the salt, the sugar and the vanilla sugar in it. Mix them altogether with a mixer for 3 minutes. After that add the flour in smaller portions and make sure your paste isn’t snagged. Add the milk and mix everything together, it will become like a sick pancake paste. Pour it into a round frame and sprinkle the fruit on top. You have to bake it for 30 minutes. If it’s cold, serve your clafoutis with powdered sugar on top, cream or ice cream on the side.

Bon appétit!
