Plum Clafoutis, a creamy French dessert with flavours of vanilla and plums. I didn’t know a delight such as this existed till I saw it on Rhea’s blog here. Saw the beautifully simple recipe and couldn’t not make it! This was also my first time making custard from scratch. Love the learning!
Here is Rhea’s recipe that I followed , only replacing brown sugar with white as I didn’t have the former.
8 -10 semi ripe plums, washed, halved and stone removed (I used four massive ones)
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup cream or fresh malai
4 tbsp powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2-3 tsps brown sugar (I used white as I didn’t have brown)
2 tsps maida/all purpose flour
Whisk together eggs with the sugar till well combines and add the flour half tsp at a time ensuring no lumps remain
Add the egg mixture to the milk cream mixture and whisk. Pour over the plums.
