Seasonal Summer Fruit Clafoutis

Seasonal Summer Fruit Clafoutis

by Josiah Meldrum

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

Ingredients

  • 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)

Method

  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.
