This fruit clafoutis is probably one of the easiest dessert that I have ever made. It’s simple, delicious and very versatile! Make it sweet or savory based on your mood of the day!

In this post, I will share two separate fruit clafoutis to show you how versatile and easy it is to switch up your choice of fruit!

I have been trying to incorporate fruit into my desserts, since it can be quite boring just eating fruit by itself day after day.

I first wanted to make Harry’s Bar’s poached pear recipe (basically poaching pear in flavored syrup and serving it cold), but my mom reminded me that my dad is really not a fan of poached pears, so she went on the internet to look for recipes, which is how she introduced me to Clafoutis! And now I am ADDICTED to it!

What’s amazing about this dessert is that its so easy to make (literally can be made in just one single bowl!), can be made with other types of fruit( a great way to eat seasonally) and you can also make it savory too with vegetables. (kind of like egg frittata!)

So you may be wondering what it tastes like and I would say that the texture is very light and it tastes like crustless pie/cake/crepe (it does have a flavor profile of a crust and it definitely more like cake texture than anything else ) Either way, I can say that its a must dessert to try and learn because it’s so versatile and you can make so many different dishes with the same batter!

So let’s get cooking, but let’s first learn about the ingredients in these two versions and some of the benefits that it provide and how it effect our body as well as things to look out for specific to your personal condition if it applies.
