Cherry Peach Clafouti

16 Sep

Our wedding was scheduled for June 30th, 2012.  We had almost everything planned and some deposits put down.  Everything was on track but the more we looked at it the more we realized as parents of 2 with really only 1 income and a mortgage, spending a ridiculous amount of money on a wedding just isn’t in the cards for us.  With a heavy heart we cancelled our dream wedding.

I was a little sad but I wasn’t willing to stop Little Miss from going to dance class or stop blogging and stop Soon-to-be from playing soccer.  For us a wedding is about uniting us as a family under the same last name.  To honor everything we have been through and everything we are going to go through TOGETHER.  And even if we stopped all of those things we would still be in debt in the end.

I had never even hear of clafouti until last week but it sounded so cool I had to make it.  Here is my Cherry Peach Clafouti.
VERDICT

It’s a thick baked custard with fruit suspended in the centre.  It wasn’t creamy but I think I over baked it a touch.  I loved the combo of cherry and peach.  It was super simple to prepare and you could add some whipped cream and serve it to guests no problem.  I preferred it cold the next morning for breakfast.  My mom loved it.   It’s an adult dessert opposed to a kids dessert.  It would be great served at a brunch!!

 Recipe – 5 ramekins – adapted form Julia Child
1 1/4 c milk
3 eggs
1/3 + 1/3 granulated sugar
1 tbs vanilla
1/2 c flour
2 c cherries pitted and sliced
1 peach sliced

Preheat oven to 350 F.  Butter your ramekins.

In a blender or by hand mix milk, eggs, flour, 1/3 c sugar and vanilla.

Pour 3 tbs of egg mixture in the bottom of each ramekin.  Place a couple slices of peaches and cover with cherries.  Sprinkle sugar on top of cherries and cover with mixture until about 1/2 an inch from the top of the ramekin.

Repeat with all ramekins, place on a baking sheet and bake 20 – 25 minutes or until puffed and brown.

Serve with ice cream or whipped cream or cold for breakfast.

Enjoy!
