A clafouti is made with fresh fruit topped by a pastry batter. Serve as a dessert or as a fancy feature at a brunch.


Serves: 8
Prep: 12min
Cook: 50min
Total: 1hr 22min


  • 1 teaspoon butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/3 cups milk
  • 3/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons minced crystallized ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups sliced fresh peaches (about 4 medium peaches)
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 2 teaspoons confectioners' sugar


1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Coat a 9" deep-dish pie plate or quiche pan with the butter, then sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of the granulated sugar.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, flour, the remaining 1/2 cup granulated sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, ginger, and salt until well-mixed.

3. Place half of the batter into the prepared pie plate.

4. In a medium bowl, combine the peaches and 2 tablespoons of the confectioners' sugar. Arrange the peaches in a pattern over the batter. Top with the remaining batter. Bake for 50 minutes, or until the clafouti is puffed, browned, and firm. Cool on a rack for at least 20 minutes.

5. To serve, sprinkle with the remaining 2 teaspoons confectioners' sugar.
