Peach Clafoutis is a classic French dessert that is simple to make and truly delicious. The dish starts with fresh peaches, which are arranged in a baking dish and covered with a custard-like batter made from eggs, sugar, milk, heavy cream and flour.
The dish is then baked until the batter sets and becomes golden brown, creating a tender and creamy texture that pairs perfectly with the juicy, sweet peaches. Clafoutis is a versatile dish that can be made with any type of fruit, but peaches are a particularly popular choice. This simple and elegant dessert is perfect for summer when peaches are in season, and it is a great way to enjoy the season’s best produce. Serve a warm slice of Peach Clafoutis with a scoop of ice cream or a drizzle of heavy cream for a truly decadent treat.
