With berry season upon us, an easy and delicious dessert to make is clafoutis. All you need to do is mix and bake to have a fresh and scrumptious French custardy treat!
Yield: One 8-inch custard
¾ cups whole milk
½ cup heavy cream
⅓ cup honey
1 tsp orange zest
1 Tbs vanilla extract
1 tsp salt
½ cup flour
2 cups fresh berries of your choice
2 Tbs granulated sugar, plus additional for pan
Powdered sugar for garnish
Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease an 8-inch pie plate or round cake pan and sprinkle with a little granulated sugar.
Blend together all ingredients except 2 tablespoons granulated sugar and berries. Pour a ¼-inch layer of batter into pie plate, and bake for 5 to 10 minutes, just until a skin forms. Toss berries with sugar while first layer sets.
Once skin forms, remove plate from oven and add berries plus remaining custard batter. Bake until top is golden brown and custard is set (moves as one when jiggled, toothpick comes out clean), about an hour.
Can serve warm, but cool completely before removing whole clafoutis from pan. Store chilled.
