Strawberry Clafoutis

Strawberry Clafoutis

If you just said to yourself, a Clafou-who? Don’t worry. I didn’t know what it was either until I came across a recipe of one while I was searching for some breakfast inspiration.  Clafoutis is a French dessert that is traditionally made of cherries baked into a flan filling.  See?  How would we know that unless we went to culinary school or were French.  Or, maybe it’s just me that was clueless.  At any rate I thought the idea of a Clafoutis sounded delicious and I had to try it.  I took bits and pieces of a few different recipes and remade them into one that is a little healthier, cleaner, gluten free and more for breakfast as opposed to a dessert.

Since local strawberries only have a short window of time left in our area, I ditched the cherries for the last of the strawberries.  You could make this Clafoutis Recipe with whatever fruit you like, though.  Cherries, peaches, blueberries…anything.

Also, if you follow me, you remember Friday I shared a couple pictures from my day with friends Leslie and Melissa, on Melissa’s family farm.  Her in-laws let us go hunting through their barns to find scraps of wood and nic-nacs I could use for photography.  I found two, old wooden folding chairs that had paint chipping off of them and knew they would make fantastic props.  I was right!  I love the instant texture it adds to the photos.  I’ll share more of the things we found as I get them photo ready.
