‘Clafoutis’ is one of the desserts that I often make. It is absolutely easy and delicious. I use a variety of Fruit, but often use Cherries OR Ripe Pears. The other day, I came across a ‘Savoury Clafoutis’ that looked like a quiche. That inspired me to make this ‘Savoury Clafoutis with Mushrooms’. Same as sweet ‘Clafoutis’, it is absolutely easy to make.

  3. Melt 20g Butter in a frying pan over medium heat, cook Mushrooms. Add Garlic, stir for a few minutes, and season with Salt & Pepper. Arrange them in the prepared pie dish.
