Elderly berries. Not elderberries. Just some raspberries that I bought before Thanksgiving and discovered in the garage refrigerator. I was able to salvage enough of them to make a clafouti. Dorie's recipe specifically called for cherries but she did allow for substitutions.
The survivor berries getting their custardy bath....See, it covered up the moldy berries nicely.
Berry/Cherry Clafouti with my mods, from Dorie Greenspan's "Around My French Table." A cookbook that makes you feel like you could be French.
1 lb berries or cherries
3 large eggs
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup whole milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
powdered sugar for dusting
Preheat oven to 350F. Generously butter a 9" deep pie plate. Place fruit in a single layer on the bottom. In a medium bowl whisk eggs til foamy, add sugar and whisk for ~1 minute. Whisk in salt/vanilla. Add flour and whisk vigorously until smooth. Gradually pour in milk and cream, whisking as you go. Pour batter over berries. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until browned and knife inserted in center comes out clean. I made mine in a blender. Started with eggs/sugar, blended. Then added vanilla and salt, blended. Then added flour and blended a little longer. Added milk/cream with blender running.
Ooh la la! You don't look a day over 2 weeks old.
Sophie loves sugar but has a hard time distinguishing between a dusting and a dumping so we used my piece for the picture.
