Blueberry-Orange Clafouti Recipe
Incredibly quick and easy to prepare, traditional French clafoutis is a wonderful way to showcase your favorite summer fruit. The dish is informal by nature, and has a special rustic charm when baked in a skillet. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream if you’re feeling truly decadent.
NOTE: You can substitute thawed frozen blueberries. Blot off the extra moisture with a paper towel and lightly dust the berries with flour to prevent them from bleeding into the batter.
Preheat the oven to 425 °
- Butter a nine-inch skillet and set it in the oven while you prepare the batter.
- Combine the buttermilk, eggs, sugar, vanilla, Cointreau, orange zest, and salt into a blender and process until well mixed.
- Add the flour and process until combined, about 30 seconds.
- Remove the pre-heated skillet from the oven and pour in the batter.
- Quickly sprinkle the blueberries evenly over the batter and return to the oven.
- Cook for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. If the top browns too fast, loosely cover it with a piece of aluminum foil.
- Remove from the oven and cool for 10 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar, spoon into individual bowls and serve immediately.
