Strawberry Clafoutis

Strawberry Clafoutis

A delicious and easy French dessert, Clafoutis (pronounced kla-foo-tee) is traditionally made with cherries but you can use any fruit your heart desires. Here I used strawberries which are only going to get better as we continue into summer. The ginger and Gran Marnier in this recipe are meant to enhance the strawberries so if you change up the fruit, change the seasonings to match. You can omit the alcohol all together if you prefer as well.

Strawberry Clafoutis
1-2 pints strawberries, sliced
1 tbsp Gran Marnier
2/3 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
Pinch salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
4 eggs
1 cup milk (you can sub almond or soy milk here if you need to)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 lemon, zested
1/2 stick butter, melted
Powdered Sugar

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
You can either butter and flour or coat with baking spray a 7″X5″ baking dish (or similar, see photo) or 6 individual wide flat gratin dishes.
Add the strawberries in an even layer on the bottom of the dish and sprinkle with the Gran Marnier. Toss the strawberries with the liqueur and let them macerate while you make the batter.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon and ginger. In a medium bowl, combine the eggs, milk, lemon zest and vanilla and whisk until the mixture is homogenous. Add the melted butter and then pour this mixture into the dry ingredients. Stir to combine until smooth. This should look like pancake batter. Pour the batter over the strawberries.
Bake in the oven 35-40 minutes or until the center is set and the top is golden brown. It will come out of the oven puffy and gorgeous but don’t be sad when it settles back down.
Dust with powdered sugar and enjoy!
