Here is the photo from yesterday's blog which for some reason didn't want to load. Clafouti is a wonderful cheap easy dessert, and almost impossible to eat in a restaurant because it is a peasant dessert and well, how many French peasant restaurants are there in your town? The ingredients are milk, eggs, flour, sugar (not too much) vanilla and fruit. Almost any kind of fruit will do. Right now, pears would be good. The "original" used cherries which we love. Plums work. Berries work. You can add a tablespoon of booze, e.g. banana liquor for banana clafouti (sometimes spelled clafoutis) but it's not necessary.
The best thing is, you can decide to make it at 5:00 p.m. and it's out of the oven and on the table by 6:00 p.m. How about them bananas?
Wonder of wonders, the ancient recipe is still on the web from 1992 Gourmet. A good recipe in immortal.
The damn rain has continued, and I was outside this morning in my jammies pulling up old plants and washing flower pots and emptying dirt. Washing off the grill tools. More to do this p.m. Where is the sun? Yoo hoo?
