Wednesday 26th March 2008Hay Hay it's Donna Day #19 - The Clafoutis Edition
Hay Hay Hay, have you heard?!|
It's my turn again! I get to host the #19 round of Hay Hay it's Donna Day! (I hosted waaaay back in July 2006 for the 4th round!)
Donna Hay's "Plum and Chocolate Clafoutis"
Yes, I was absolutely delighted to hear from Bordeaux a week or so ago, that I had won the #18 round hosted over at his blog Marita Says with my Coconut and Lime Chocolate Tart creations.
I am a big fan of Donna Hay's style and her "special made simple" recipes and as most of you will know this very popular food blogging event is the brainchild of my good friend Barbara over at Winos and Foodies.
Now one of the best things about being the host of this event is that you get to choose the theme, and which of Donna Hay's delicious recipes will lead the festivities! I was so excited flipping through my huge piles of Donna magazines and recipe books. I initially started out jotting down a fairly long list of possibilities. I struggled on, managing to trim the list down to 3 possible recipes. It was at that stage I had to call up three and fourpence, errr, I mean reinforcements to help make the final decision.
Over Summer we were so very fortunate to indulge in masses of berries, many from our own garden and others from a local berry farm. Naturally I served them in many different forms, but countless times we enjoyed them as "Berry Island" as it was coined by our girls. For breakfast, brunch and dessert, yes, this dish is well loved any time of the day in the Marshall household. So it's with the help of all 4 of us Clafoutis loving Marshalls that I bring to you...
Hay Hay it's Donna Day round #19 - THE CLAFOUTIS EDITION!
As the Summer berry season is well and truly over down here I chose one of Donna's recipes that included Autumnal plums. The recipe featured in Donna Hay Magazine's Autumn issue last year (Issue 32, page: 118). As an added bonus, this recipe not only includes Plums, but it is in fact "Plum and CHOCOLATE Clafoutis!"
However, to enter this event you can make any variation on Clafoutis, either using Berries, (btw... Donna has another delicious looking recipe for "Mixed Berry Clafoutis" in her past Christmas Issue, (Issue 36, page: 108) or the more traditional cherry clafoutis. You could create a sweet clafoutis with chocolate, vanilla flavours or a savoury clafoutis with vegetables... whatever takes your fancy!
Also you can enter as many times as you like* - make as many clafoutis as you care to or have the eggs for! But please make each entry to this round a new blog post and mark it specifically for the Hay Hay it's Donna Day #19 - The Clafoutis Edition event.
So, to tie up the remaining loose ends or questions you may have...here are the "RULES!" Although, to be honest, I'm not really one for following the 'rules' - but apparently according to Barbara I have to post these few points up:
And lastly but by no mean least... the RECIPE!
