Seasonal Summer Fruit Clafoutis

Seasonal Summer Fruit Clafoutis

by Josiah Meldrum 1 Comment

This easy and versatile dish makes the most of seasonal fruit for a superb late summer dessert - or even a whole meal! It's especially lovely made with little yellow mirabelle plums, which have a wonderful honeydew sweetness.

Makes 6 to 8 servings


  • 400g Mirabelle Plums, halved - or other fruit such as Plums, Apricots, Cherries or Strawberries, chopped into approx 1cm pieces.
  • 1tsp Rapeseed Oil, or other mild cooking oil, for greasing
  • 1tbsp Apple Syrup (optional)
  • 1tbsp Rum (optional)
For the Batter
  • 100g Flour - almost any flour will work well. We like a Wholemeal YQ Flour or Botanical Blend Flour for extra aromatic breadth of flavour
  • 70g Golden Caster Sugar
  • 3 Eggs - either hens eggs or chia eggs (for each chia egg mix 1tbsp Chia Seeds with 2½tbsp water and leave to stand for 5 minutes)
  • 250ml Milk - PureOaty Oat Drink works brilliantly or use any other fullish fat milk or alternative
For Sprinkling
  • 1 tbsp Light Muscovado Sugar (or Golden Caster Sugar)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C.
  2. Lightly oil a baking or flan dish (approx 23cm)
  3. Spread the fruit over the base of the dish and drizzle over the apple syrup and/or rum, if using.
  4. Mix the batter ingredients together, by hand or in a blender, and pour over the fruit.
  5. Pour over the batter and sprinkle over the extra sugar.
  6. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until lightly browned.

Made the vegan version but with figs and cooking apple instead of plums – absolutely delicious! Will be making again with whatever seasonal fruit we have.

Farmer's Pea Pie
Farmer's Pea Pie

by The Cook and Him

Inspired by classic British Shepherd's Pie but using split green peas in place of traditional lamb mince, this Farmer's Pea Pie from the Cook & Him makes an equally comforting and satisfying vegan alternative. A splash of soy sauce and a dash of our umami paste give a wonderful depth of flavour. It's deliciously topped off with a rich yeasty root veg mash.

Wrinkled Pea Masala
Wrinkled Pea Masala

by Nick Saltmarsh

Inspired by Felicity Cloake's Perfect Chana Masala, this simple but satisfying recipe substitutes whole wrinkled peas for the usual chana or chickpeas. It's delicious with either (or just about any whole pulse) but the especially high resistant starch content of wrinkled peas provides more nourishment for your gut flora.

Hemp Pesto

This pesto really shows off our delicious and tender shelled hemp seed, evocative of pine nuts and hemp seed. With our fermented fava bean umami paste taking the place of the usual Parmesan cheese, this happens to be vegan.
