Traditionally made with cherries, this Lemon Blueberry Clafoutis is a delicious twist on this classic French dessert.

A funny conversation occurred yesterday afternoon. My hubby had his monthly scout leader meeting at our house. I don’t attend as I am an unofficial volunteer (being married to the cubmaster), so I hover in the kitchen and listen. If I sit down, then I get sucked into the entire 2-hour meeting and I’ll probably walk away with more responsibilities than I already have. Unofficially, that is.

After the meeting, one of the dads saw me and said hello.

“I noticed you didn’t post any new recipes on Facebook last week,” he asked.

Yes, I have some scout dads as Facebook fans… what of it?

“Oh, did you miss all three of them?” I asked.

“Really? I didn’t remember seeing anything. Are you sure?”

“They weren’t dessert recipes this week. It was mostly quinoa.”

“Oh healthy stuff! Yeah, I must have skipped them!”

Great.

So, for those of you that need your sugar fix, I have a Lemon Blueberry Clafoutis for you.

What’s a clafoutis? It’s a French dessert that has a flan-like center. Typically made with cherries, I cheated and made it super easy with blueberries and lemons.

I made two last week. One for the school’s staff luncheon, one for a back-to-school pool party. Both were devoured.

Everyone needs a delicious sugar fix.

Traditionally made with cherries, this custard-like French dessert is even easier to make with fresh blueberries. Recipe by Laura Bashar of Family Spice

Ingredients:

  • 3 eggs, large
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 TBS lemon juice
  • 1 TBS lemon zest
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 TBS powdered sugar

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  2. Coat a 9-inch cake pan with non-stick spray.
  3. Using a hand mixer, whisk until smooth:
    • 3 eggs, large
    • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
    • 1/8 tsp salt
    • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  4. Add to the egg mixture and stir in until smooth:
    • 1 1/2 cup heavy cream
    • 1 TBS lemon juice
    • 1 TBS lemon zest
    • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  5. Pour batter into prepared cake pan.
  6. Scatter into batter:
    • 1 cup blueberries
  7. Bake for 40 minutes, until lightly browned & a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. It will be a little wiggly.
  8. Cool on a wire rack. It will puff up in the oven & deflate while it cools.
  9. Dust with:
    • 1 TBS powdered sugar
  10. Serve in the cake pan or gently remove and place on a plate.
