Dax and Gavin’s Any Berry Clafoutis

Clafoutis on a table

Clafoutis is a classic French dessert, falling somewhere between a thick crepe and a sweet quiche.


Yield: 6-8 servings


  • 1 Tbsp room temperature butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 cups berries
  • Powdered sugar for dusting (optional)


  1. Heat the oven 350 F. Grease a 9-inch pie plate with the soft butter. Place the pie plate on a rimmed baking sheet.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, sugar, vanilla, and salt until smooth and pale. Add the flour and half the milk and whisk until smooth, but do not overmix.
  3. Add the remaining milk and whisk until combined. Rest the batter for 20 minutes or so.
  4. Pour the batter into the greased pie plate. Scatter the berries on top. Place the baking sheet with the clafoutis on it in the oven and bake for about 40 to 50 minutes. The edges should be golden, the clafoutis will have puffed and should be firm but still have a slight jiggle if you shake the pie plate.
  5. Let the clafoutis cool in the pie dish for about 30 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar, slice and serve warm or cold.
