Originally from the Limousin region of France, clafouti is sort of a cross between a flan and a fruit-filled pancake. This one embraces apricots instead of the traditional cherries, but any fruit can be used, including apples, pears, peaches and plums.

Let's see, l pound of fresh apricots listed under ingredients.......then in the directions.....drain the apricots (reserving the syrup)....what will it be???


I made this for a dinner party for 6-but I used blueberries instead.I served it was vanilla frozen yogurt. It was very easy to make, had a wonderful fragrance, and the whole thing was devoured by the six people in attendance-the men eating the lion's share!!! I would definitely make this again! A great alternative a pastry laden blueberry pie.


I am always looking for recipes that can be made fat-free which means no eggs, no butter or oils. Made this with apples/pears/cranberries instead of apricots and also used egg substitute along with egg whites as well as fat free milk - Voila! entirely fat-free and delicious.
