French Food Friday - Strawberry Clafoutis
|photo from feastandfableblog.com|
I am not sure why, but last week I purchased a lot of frozen strawberries as I thought that these would be great to have on hand.
So I thought that this weekend I would make something with them. Jam is always a good option but it has been a busy and strange week as we are going back into lockdown for a month and it will take a few days to get used to use and get into a routine like we did earlier in the year.
Hence we deserve a sweet treat this weekend and this is what I am going to be making, thanks to feastandfable for the fabulous recipe.
450 grams Strawberries, halved or quartered
1 Tbsp. Cornstarch
1 Cup Milk
2/3 Cup Flour
1/4 Cup Sugar
2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
pinch of Salt
powdered sugar, for garnish
ice cream, for topping
strawberry sauce, for garnish
1.) Preheat oven to 180 degrees/365 degrees F.
Gently wash and dry the strawberries. Then, cut large strawberries into quarters and medium strawberries in half.
2.) Toss the strawberries lightly with sifted cornstarch and divide between 4 ramekins (or 8, 3.5 inch mini-skillets). Then, whisk together the eggs, milk, flour, sugar, vanilla and salt.
Pour over the strawberries and bake until partially golden-brown and slightly puffed up, 25-30 minutes (or 16- 20 minutes if using mini skillets).
Serve with a garnish of sifted powdered sugar, ice cream and strawberry sauce! Bon appetit!
Note if you are using frozen strawberries, it is best to defrost them first and discard any liquid before using them.
Bon fin de semaine, Leeann x
