Flaugnarde of Mixed Berries (Clafoutis)

I usually gravitate to warm fruit desserts, berry custards, or bread puddings, so naturally, a Flaugnarde of Mixed Berries has my name all over it. A flaugnarde is a rustic French custard-like dessert that is made with eggs, milk, and fruit and after that cleaned with powdered sugar and consumed warm. Due to the fact that this dish is more of a custard, utilizing entire eggs is a must. So, to lighten it, I changed the cream with low-fat milk and was truly please with the outcomes.

This combined berry flaugnarde is similar to a clafoutis. Nevertheless, a conventional clafoutis requires black cherries – if any other fruit is utilized, it’s called a flaugnarde. You can make this dessert with fresh berries, plums, or even peaches.

How to Make a Flaugnarde

A flaugnarde may sound and look impressive, but you won’t believe how simple it is to make.

  1. Put the berries in the prepared baking dish.
  2. Whisk the eggs, agave, salt, and flour together and then add in the milk and vanilla extract.
  3. Pour the custard mixture into the dish, and bake for 45-50 minutes until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  4. Once cool, dust with powdered sugar and serve.

Flaugnarde Variations & Tips:

  • Feel free to use just one type of berry instead of a mix.
  • Sub in frozen berries if fresh aren’t in season.
  • If you’re not a fan of berries, you could use another fruit like peaches, apples, or plums.
  • Swap the berries for cherries to make a clafoutis. 
  • Serve with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt.
  • I utilized an oval baking dish, but a 7 x 11 or 9 x 9 dish should work. You might need to adjust the baking time.
  • For individual portions, bake the custard in ramekins for easy portion control.
  • Refrigerate leftovers for up to three days.
