my first clafoutis…..

Gosh I married a good man! After we saw Julie and Julia, my lovely husband thought he’d get me Mastering the Art of French Cooking for our wedding anniversary later this month! I am feeling very special as he got me both volumes and its win win since we’ll all be enjoying delicious french food…perhaps in moderation to ensure we don’t grow out of our clothes!

Yesterday afternoon I tried out my first recipe in the book…..clafoutis…..all you need is a jar of cherries, milk, sugar, flour, eggs and vanilla! The instructions were so straightforward, ingredients in cup and Tbsp measurements and it was soooo delicious….

afternoon tea today

So delicious that there isn’t much left……now the recipe called for granulated sugar to be dusted on top but I’m thinking icing sugar might look prettier next time.

  2. mmmmmmmmmm – been thinking about getting the novel too

  3. It does look delicious Corrie, you will be an expert at french cooking in no time.

  4. I actually make clafoutis all the time because it’s so easy and uses up fruit that needs to be eaten. It’s really good with runny cream mmmmmmm!

  5. Oh I love clafoutis. It’s gorgeous. And you are a very lucky woman!

  6. Oh YUM!!! What a sensational looking clafoutis!
