purple + golden plum blueberry clafouti

purple + golden plum blueberry clafouti

friday nights are usually pizza fridays

this past friday it was the usual for justin , large cheese- but for me it was clafouti night

say it with me
 kla-foo-tee

it's kinda fun to say, isn't it? well, i think so

what's not fun about having dessert for dinner?




purple + golden plum blueberry clafouti

clafouti is a traditional french dessert from the limousin region.

it is made by layering fresh fruit (traditionally cherries are used but other fruit can be used) in a buttered baking dish
the fruit is covered in a batter that when baked can be either cake like or pudding like

clafouti is served warm, typically with heavy cream poured over the top

this clafouti is definitely more like a pudding
pre-vegan i never had a chance to sample a traditional clafouti so i did not have anything to compare my veganized version too - all i can tell you, that it tasted good!

as you can see i went with a non traditional approach, by using what was in season....
and it just so happened to be what was in the fridge
 
golden plums, jewel like red plums & blueberries

plums are cut in half with a paring knife

the two halves twisted until loose

then the pit is removed with the same knife....carefully!

i found this to be therapeutic process- i find comfort in monotonous tasks
try not to day dream too much you want to keep all fingers intact

fruit is then layered in a tart pan. or any round dish for that matter, but i thought the tart pan was pretty

she has been ignored lately, so i thought i would put her to good use

the cinnamon spiked, slightly sweet pudding like batter is poured over the top

warning - not all the batter would fit in the tart pan so i made a little single serve clafouti

the clafouti is baked for about 55 minutes, until bubbly & golden brown

it will look under cooked but will firm up a bit when cooled -
remember this is suppose to be pudding like not cake like clafouti

traditionally clafouti is served with a dusting of powdered sugar- so pretty i am sure

...but i really wasn't prepared aka- i ran out of powdered sugar
so i opted to go with brown sugar and pecans

the next day, left overs were warmed in the microwave & enjoyed with a scoop of vegan ice cream-
mmmm, sooo goood!
