‘Clafoutis’ is a simple French dessert and it is really quick and easy to make. Traditionally Clafoutis is made with Cherries, but I use a variety of Fruit. Ripe Pears, Peaches and Berries are perfect. Today I made this Prune version, because I wanted to make a dessert using Dried Prunes. It was absolutely delicious.


6 to 8 Servings *I used 22.5cm Pie Dish


20 Dried Prunes *add as many as you want
1/4 cup Caster Sugar
1 pinch Salt
2 Eggs
1/2 cup Thickened Cream
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/4 cup Plain Flour
30g Butter *melted
Extra Butter & Caster Sugar to coat the pie dish
Powdered Sugar for dusting

  1. Preheat oven to 170℃. Butter a pie dish and add a small amount of Caster Sugar to coat, shaking out any excess Sugar. *I used 22.5cm Pie Dish.
  2. Place Sugar, Salt, Eggs, Cream, Vanilla Extract in a bowl, mix with a whisk, sift in Flour and mix well until smooth. Add melted Butter and combine well. Pour the mixture in the prepared pie dish.
  3. Arrange Dried Prunes, and bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until golden and cooked through.

  4. Dust with Powdered Sugar before serve and enjoy warm or cold. I like it cold.
