Picnic in the Park with Clafoutis


Transport yourself back to your vacation in the France country side with a classic homemade clafoutis and sweet strawberry lemonade.  During these late summer afternoons indulge in season’s blushing cherries, blueberries, and strawberry sweetness, and organize a laid down picnic with friends or family. No fuss, no overtly difficult meals, just dessert, tasty fruit and drinks.  It won’t be long till a crisp wind will make us crawl up on our couches again with a blanket and hot chocolate. So you better start baking and create this sweet reminder! Clafoutis is easy to make and best served luke-warm.  For the recipe scroll down.
