Clafouti (kla-foo-TEE) is one of the easiest French desserts to prepare. Make it by topping a layer of fresh fruit with batter and baking; the resulting texture is between that of a pudding and a cake.
1/2 pound small fresh figs (about 18), quartered
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
2 cups 2% reduced-fat milk
1/2 teaspoon grated orange rind
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 375°.
Place figs in a 10-inch deep-dish pie plate coated with cooking spray. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, sugar, salt, and cloves in a bowl. Gradually add half of milk, stirring with a whisk. Stir in remaining milk, rind, and eggs. Pour batter over figs. Bake at 375° for 1 hour or until set; cool.
