Strawberry Clafouti

Makes 4 to 6 servings

Prep and Cook Time
1 hr 15 mins

As easy to make as a pancake, this classic French dessert from the Limousin region involves pouring a simple batter over fresh fruit (typically cherries) and baking until puffed and golden brown. The fruit rises to the top, leaving a soft layer whose texture falls somewhere between custard and cake.
