A French peach sweet dessert that is light but creamy at the same time!
So yesterday the EURO 2016 Championship started! And me being a fan of the Euro, I got very excited when the lovely team at Redmond Multicookers challenged me to create a recipe of one of the countries that are playing in the Euros! I chose France because I really wanted to share my peach clafoutis recipe with you, and as peaches are currently in season I thought that it was the perfect time to recreate my recipe and share it on the blog!
Clafoutis (pronounced as clafouti) is a traditional French bake that comes from the Limousin region of France. It’s usually baked with black cherries, but can be baked with any fruits that you fancy, for example peaches, apples, pears, prunes or even plums. When you make the batter, it comes out very thin, and resembles a crepe batter. But once baked it becomes thick and creamy, and I think that the texture is very similar to flan. Once baked, this rustic country dessert is dusted with caster sugar, and is served warm.
The traditional recipe calls for adding a teaspoon of almond extract, but I decided to omit this step this time. As I think that this works better for the black cherry version.
I baked this in my Redmond Multicooker RMC-M150E, it only took 40 minutes for it to be ready and in the correct texture. But this can of course be made in a traditional oven. The thing that I like about my Multicooker is that not only it saves me a lot of time in having to check the bake, but it also comes with 3D heating system which means that the heat is distributed evenly and bakes the dessert well. My multicooker is now available only for £147.
Taking the dessert out of the Redmond ceramic bowl can be a bit tricky. This is how I do it: I use a medium plate and put it inside the bowl to cover the surface of the dessert (but don’t push!). And I have a bigger plate prepared on the side, so while holding the medium plate let the dessert slide out of the ceramic bowl, and put it on the larger plate. Remove the medium plate from the top of the dessert, sprinkle with caster sugar, and serve!
