I have found my new favourite easy gourmet breakfast, the raspberry Clafoutis. Clafoutis is a rustic French dessert which has a custard or flan like texture and is traditionally made with cherries. Cherries are not my favourite berries so I decided to make it with raspberries.
This recipe takes minutes to make and in the end you get a decadent dessert or breakfast to enjoy. Early today my sister and her two boys came over to visit. I had been dying to make a clafoutis, so today was the perfect day to try it out.
The children did not try it (they were too interested in their Timbits) however, my sister and I agreed that it tasted phenomenal . I am huge believer in sweets for breakfast and this raspberry clafoutis will definitely be joining my breakfast recipe rotation.
What I like best about it is everything gets whisked in one bowl and only takes minutes to prepare. The batter has a liquid texture so don't be discouraged if you think your batter looks to watery.
Once baked, cool slightly and then dust with icing sugar. It is best to enjoy warm.
Bake it with your kids or bake it on your own, either way you will fall in love with this raspberry clafoutis.
