A Little Late Plum Clafoutis

I am late with my posting for Sweet Melissa Sunday's. We went camping this weekend (more on that later). My intent was to bake this on Sunday after I got home. Seriously, I should know better. I don't know about you but baking when I am tired spells disaster.

Clafoutis...don't you just love the name? It's interesting you find this recipe in the breakfast section of Melissa's cookbook. When I made this clafoutis last year, I remember thinking it would make a wonderful addition to a brunch.

I baked one fourth of the recipe in two ramekins. Other than omitting the almonds (because there were none in the freezer), I prepared the recipe as written. The plums are cooked in a cinnamon sugar syrup. The syrup adds a wonderful sweetness to the egg base of the clafoutis. This recipe is a keeper!! I can see changing the fruits, using different nuts and even making this savory instead of sweet.




You can find the recipe over on Michelle of Flourchild's blog. Thanks Michelle for choosing such a fabulous recipe. If you want to see the other SMS baker's clafouti's, go here!

Since I am posting Sunday's recipe on Monday, I decided I might as well really mix it up and link to Tuesday's at the Table, Tempt My Tummy Tuesday and Tasty Tuesday's.

  6. That looks lovely in the ramekins! I was thinking of adapting it for savoury then realised it would basically be my frittata recipe anyway! Although sweet potatoes sautéed in butter and cinnamon would work really really well I think!

  8. We love clafoutis! I usually make peach or blueberry (or a peach/blueberry combo). I've never tried it with plums before!

  10. What a gorgeous dessert. I'll be posting a pear claufoutis later in the week. I think you might enjoy it although it's no where near as pretty as your plum confection. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary

  16. Ooooh, I love these and yours looks just beautiful. My plums will be ready the end of this month. I'm hoping to make one of these purple loves! Thanks Julie...and I do love the name. I have a good friend who just moved into my neighborhood from France. He is a pastry chef and you should hear him say it!

  17. I wouldn't know a clafouti from a calzone if it weren't for all you bakers out there.

    It looks delicious!
