"If you’ve never had or heard of a Clafoutis before, it’s a baked French fruit dessert that has a thick flan-like batter piled on top. It’s usually dusted with powdered sugar and served semi-warm and in my opinion, should always have a dollop of freshly whipped cream. It’s perfection. Easy to make and easier to eat – my favorite kind of recipe!!"
