Get Cooking!

Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease a large 12 inch pie plate or baking dish with butter across the bottom and sides.

In a large bowl, whisk together milk, ¼ cup sugar, eggs, vanilla, and salt.

Whisk is the flour in batches so it doesn’t clump.

Scoop a third of the mixture into the bottom of the dish, and then scatter the fruit all over the dish. Top with remaining batter. Sprinkle with ¼ cup of sugar.

Bake 45 – 60 minutes, until the clafoutis is golden and bubbling.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly. Serve warm with whipped cream or your favourite ice cream!
