Pear Clafouti

"Clafouti" (originally spelled "clafoutis") is a classic French dessert traditionally made with black cherries. This variation swaps the cherries for cubed, peeled pears, making it a wonderful fall dessert choice.

Cooking Light SEPTEMBER 1997

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 wedge)

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups cubed peeled pear
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 cups 1% low-fat milk, divided
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375°.

Coat a 10-inch deep-dish pie plate with cooking spray, and dust plate with 1 teaspoon flour. Arrange the pear cubes in the bottom of prepared dish, and set aside.

Combine 3/4 cup flour, salt, and nutmeg in a bowl. Gradually add 1 cup milk, stirring with a whisk until well-blended. Add 1 cup milk, eggs, sugar, and vanilla extract, stirring until smooth. Pour batter over pear cubes. Bake mixture at 375° for 35 minutes or until set.

Note:

The keys to a successful clafouti (cla-foo-TEE) are minimal use of flour and a hot oven in which to cook it quickly. As one of the national desserts of France, it's quite versatile.
