Cherry Clafoutis Recipe Notes, Variations & Substitutions

As Camilla notes in the original recipe, “Clafouti is a traditional French country dessert that tastes like a cross between a custard or flan and a fruit-filled pancake. Traditional versions use cherries, but any fruit can be used, including apples, berries, sliced pears, peaches,  plums or apricots. It will puff up dramatically during baking, then collapse. Let it cool slightly before serving, then chill the leftovers for a delicious breakfast treat the next morning.”

Cherry Clafoutis Serving Suggestions

A slice of clafoutis pairs well with a small bowl of yogurt and fresh fruit.

Individually wrap your clafoutis slices for a quick grab-n-go breakfast, or snack, which works well when you’re short on time in the morning.

Ways to Use Leftover Clafouti

This Cherry Clafouti makes a nice leftover breakfast, served warm from the oven, toaster oven or microwave, or at room temperature, or chilled right out of the refrigerator on a warm day.

It can also be enjoyed as a simple dessert all by itself, with a dusting of powdered sugar, or a dollop of whipped topping.
