plum custard flan

Celebrating seasonal fruit.

A clafoutis (pronounced as Kla-foo-tee), is a wonderfully simple French custard-based dessert made traditionally with whole cherries. In our version, we use a variety of fresh plums, but the best bit about a clafoutis is that you can use whichever stone fruit you like. It’s a versatile desert that celebrates seasonal fruit and is just too easy not to try.

The classic French method uses traditional baked egg custard ingredients such a whole milk, white sugar and flour. We replace milk with homemade yogurt, include almond flour, switch white sugar for coconut sugar and add a pinch of nutmeg. For the smoothest finish we throw all the ingredients into the Vibe Blender jug for a quick blitz. The result is a creamy, caramel-like custard dessert that takes only a few minutes prep before baking.

A clafoutis doesn’t have a pastry base. To give the flan structure don’t be shy coating the baking dish with plenty of butter and sugar. 

Serve warm or cold. It’s fantastic either way!
