Sunday 20th April 2008Cherry Berry - Berry Cherry Clafoutis
What could be More Cheerful than a Cherry Berry Dessert?!|
This is my favourite, this is the one I adore and this is the one we lived on all through Summer!
Fortunately I had the foresight to freeze plenty of fruit, including cherries and berries so that we can still enjoy Cherry Berry Clafoutis now and over the future cooler months here downunder. The Marshall addiction to this dessert being so strong we could not bear to go through a long cold winter without it.
Best of all - I can share it with all of you for this round of Hay Hay it's Donna Day hosted by... well me, yours truly!
I've received a fair few amazing and delicious looking Clafoutis over the past weeks and several of you have promised me more which is super and I can't wait to see them!
For those of you who haven't made one yet, there is still plenty of time - unfortunately for me (as next weekend I'm engaged with several important family commitments!) yet fortunately for YOU?! There has been a muddle with the deadline to The Clafoutis Edition on a couple of the food blogging event announcement sites, namely IMBB. Curious, as when I checked in when it first went up it was correct?! However, I guess to be fair that site has been under recent maintenance and has a new look.
Anyway to cut a long story short, my loss is your gain, and you now have a whole extra week 'til Monday the 28th of April to make your Clafoutis and send it to me. That being said if your post is all ready to go, I would really really appreciate if you could post it a.s.a.p - so that I can organise most of the roundup earlier in the week. Otherwise I may have to run with a two part-er roundup, or withhold the roundup until a later date than I had hoped for. I'm sure you can understand my predicament!
The details again for those who missed them are...
So now I've taken care of the business side of things, lets get back to some more Cherry Berriness and the recipe for my favourite Clafoutis.
As I said above, I used frozen fruit for these ones, except for the blueberries - they were fresh! I also defrosted the berries a tad, but not so much that they were soft. This was purely so they didn't take the heat out of the baking dishes too much.
A few other tips I'd like to suggest are to make sure your cup of flour is a loose airy cup, not a tightly packed cup. One way to ensure this is to take a dry whisk and fluff up your flour storage container before you measure. I like to think the secret to making the best Clafoutis is that it needs to be treated a bit like a Yorkshire pudding - as you want a hot oven and hot dishes to get that perfect puffy risen texture.
Good luck and I really do hope you'll join in the fun this week with 'The Clafoutis Edition' of Hay Hay it's Donna Day!
