milk; you can use a dairy-free version like almond milk, coconut milk or rice milk
1/3 cup of sweetened condensed milk; replace with 1/3 cup heavy cream (dairy-free option is acceptable) and 1/4 cup of sugar
blueberries; cherries, blackberries, raspberries, chopped peaches
It is important to butter the dish generously. I use a piece of cold butter and rub it all over the dish
When you pour the egg mixture over the blueberries, tap the dish to reduce some of the bubbles
Don’t have a blender? Use an electric mixer at high speed for 2 minutes
Don’t have a deep pie dish? Use an equivalent size round or square baking dish.
Storing and reheating blueberry clafoutis
Assuming you have some leftovers, here are a few tips for storing and reheating blueberry clafoutis. The dish is typically served warm. So if you need to reheat, pop it in a 350 F oven for about 10 minutes.
As for storage, cover and refrigerate any leftovers within two hours of baking. It will keep in the fridge for up to four days. Then, when you’re ready to serve again, serve it cold or follow the reheating instructions above.
The French serve the clafoutis as dessert. You can enjoy it by scooping it out with a large spoon into a bowl with cream or sliced into wedges and served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Or, serve it for breakfast or brunch just as is with a light sprinkle of powdered sugar to make it look pretty and maybe even add extra fresh berries.
After all, the clafoutis is filled with healthy blueberries, milk and eggs and is only lightly sweetened. So why not start your day with deliciousness!
The French dessert can be served warm or cold. In the summer, my preference is cold because the clafoutis tastes like a creamy vanilla custard studded with fresh blueberries. It’s very refreshing during the hot summer months.
