Summer Plum Clafoutis

Summer Plum Clafoutis

Clafoutis, {kla-foo-tee}, is traditionally made with cherries, but I couldn’t resist making this with gorgeous red plums I scored at the market. You can really make this with whatever berry or stone fruit you like. It’s a good sturdy custard so it can hold up to anything you throw at it.

I love making summer fruit dishes. It’s fresh and just comforting enough. Especially on a warm day when a scoop of ice cream on top is all you need to cool everything down. August is also a great month for plums, they’re ripe, sweet and just tart enough to bake with.

Enjoy this on your bake patio with a cold glass of prosecco. It is truly heaven on earth. Serve with ice cream or a sprinkle of powdered sugar.
