Spring dessert: Red fruit Clafoutis


It’s going to be a spectacular weekend folks! High temperatures, blue skies and lots of sun beams are in store for us. I know a lot of you will bring out the barbecue, go to the beach or rent a boat to hit the lakes. And when you are eating outdoors, there is no better sweet treat to prepare and pack than small one-person portions of the quintessential French dessert: Clafoutis. The sweet delicacy is best when eaten luke warm so no fuss with a cooler or ice packs. Just bake them the night before or early in the morning and keep them fresh topped with foil. Clafoutis has its distinct texture and taste by the ground almond. The recipe I use comes from Rachel Khoo, my favourite TV cook and cook book author. Scroll down for the recipe. And enjoy this beautiful weekend!
