Blueberries Clafouti


Blueberries Clafouti

This week at IHCC, we are cooking Curtis Stone's recipes that are perfect to nosh on while lounging about - in a bowl, on a plate, finger foods, a beverage.


I have found a few Curtis Stone's recipes that I'd really love to cook, such as roasted sweet potatoes wedges, corn and bacon muffins. In the end, I choose his Blueberries Clafouti because I have always wanted to make this delicate custardy dessert.


Recipe adapted from here.

Ingredients:
(Serves 4-6)

3/4 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup raw granulated cane sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
3 large egg yolks
1 & 1/4 cups heavy cream
2/3 cup frozen blueberries, don't thaw

How to:

1. Toast the sliced almonds in a shallow frying pan over medium-low heat. Once done, set aside to cool. Then, transfer the toasted almonds into a food processor. Add sugar, flour, and salt. Pulse until the almonds are very finely ground.

2. Blend in the eggs and egg yolks. Add the heavy cream and continue to blend until a smooth batter forms. Transfer the batter to bowl, cover, and refrigerate for at least two hours.

3. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Generously oil a standard pie dish. 

4. Remove the chilled batter from the fridge about 10 minutes before baking. Stir the batter to blend, and then pour it into the prepared pie dish. Scatter the blueberries into the dish.

5. Bake the clafouti for about 15 minutes, or until the top begins to brown on top. Leave the dish in the oven for about 8 minutes. Then, remove it from the oven and let cool for about 5 minutes. Serve.



Curtis' recipe calls for 2/3 cup of granulated sugar. I have reduced it to 1/2 cup but I still find it too sweet. For people like me who don't fancy sweet stuff, I think 1/4 cup sugar would do.

 
I love how the warm blueberries pop in my mouth. My 32-month old toddler loves the blueberries too, so this dessert is a hit!

  5. Hi Joyce,
    Lovely clafouti! Like you, I do not like overly sweet dessert and always reduce the amount of sugar too. This looks like the perfect snack to enjoy on the sofa!

  6. Clafoutis is always a success in our house, with any fruit. I can't await the cherry season and blueberries

  7. Love the new look of your site and I also love this blueberry dessert! I have a rather big sweet tooth and I know I would enjoy this recipe. Plus, since it has blueberries in it then I say it's officially healthy and therefore good for breakfast, lunch, or dinner:)
