Easy plum Clafoutis


Plum clafoutis
A clafoutis is a French flan type cake traditionally baked  with cherries, but often made with other fruits as well. 

My recipe is a simple adaptation of the classic clafoutis and I used fresh, seasonal yellow plums.


-          500 g plums
-          150 g sugar
-          100 g flour
-           50 g melted butter
-           2 dl milk
-           A pinch salt
-           ½ teaspoon vanilla suga
-           30 x 20 cm oven proof glass pan (or equivalent)

- Pre-heat oven to 180

- Slice your plums in 8 pieces each.

- Melt butter and let it cool, but use a little to grease your pan.

- Beat eggs and sugar until smooth.

- Add the melted butter, mix well,  then add the rest of the ingredients.

- Place your plums in the pan and pour the batter over.

- Bake in a 180 degrees oven for about 40 - 45 mn. If you use an electric oven you can use the function ‘heat from under’ to avoid over browning on the top, remember most French ovens are gas oven and heat from under.

- Let it cool and sprinkle with a little sugar if you like.

- Serve with vanilla ice-cream or cream
