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.

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.
