Basic Clafoutis

Introduction

Originally, clafoutis comes from the Limousin region in France and is made with cherries. Any kind of fruit works though; if it's big, you can just cut it up to roughly the size of cherries. Prunes, apricots and the like can just be halved. This recipe is the simplest one I've got and is not very sweet. About 260 Kcal per portion and serves 4 (yeah, right!)

    • 2 litres of milk! 2 Litres? Pull the other one. You're making a batter not a milk shake.
