Clafouti is a rustic French dessert where a thick batter is poured over fruit and baked in the oven until puffy. Brandied prunes are used here, but feel free to use your favorite dried or fresh fruit instead.

So quick to make! This is a great recipe. I did all the mixing in a stand mixer, just put in eggs first, mixed and added as the recipe moved forward. Then you pour the batter over the prunes, bake, and voila! It's done! I sprinkled some almond slivers on top of the prunes, before I added the batter. Surprise! They floated to the surface and decorated the top of the clafoutis. Next time I'll also add a touch of almond extract to amp up the almond flavor just a tad. Pros: Comes togehter very quickly Cons: What's not to like!

Delicious easy dessert I have made this dessert on several occasions (at least 10 times) It always gets high praise. It's so simple and can cook while you are hosting guests. I let the prunes soak longer than in the recipe and add a little extra brandy to the batter. My cousin liked it so much she hosted a brunch around it. Pros: Easy, perfect for guests, tasty not too sweet
