Mirabelles Clafoutis

ingredients

Ingredients

  • 65g Flour
  • (or 40g Rice Flour + 25g Maizena- Gluten free)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 40g Sugar
  • 25g Butter
  • 15cL Milk
  • Vanilla Sugar
  • Mirabelles
Step 1

‣ Start by blanching the eggs with the sugar and vanilla sugar (mix the eggs and the sugar until it gets pale yellow)

Step 2

Warm the milk in a pan. You can add a vanilla pod that you will not forget to take away once the milk is warm! Depending on your tastes you could otherwise add a bit of cinnamon.
‣ Meanwhile you can add the flour to the blanched eggs and whisk it.

Step 3

Melt the butter. (be careful if you do it in the microwave, it can "explode" quickly).
Add the hot milk and the butter to the first mixture and whisk until everything is well blended. It should be quite liquid.

Step 4

Grease the molds if needed.
‣ Put 5-6 half of mirabelles in each and fill with the pastry up to the top.
‣ Put in the oven (180°C) for about 20mins
‣ Wait until the clafoutis are cold to take them out of the molds.

Bonus

‣ I've made this recipe with rice flour and maizena as shown in the ingredients list. It worked well and is good for gluten intolerants.
‣ I prefer using small molds as it cooks faster but you can obviously make bigger clafoutis in a cake tin or a 5cm pie tin. You should then double the quantities and bake it longer, around 40mins.

Instead of mirabelles, you can use cherries, raspberries, apricots, plums, strawberries...
Enjoy!
