When we talk about French cuisine, you can’t help but always start with how rich and diverse it is. French cuisine has developed and emerged as one of the most admirable and famed after being influenced by the cooking method by many other neighbouring countries such as Germany, Italy, Span, Belgium, and a few more countries. While it's best known for its intriguing yet sophisticated style and preparation method that it follows, the best thing that the French cuisine has gifted us with is its desserts. Clafoutis is one such dessert from all over the world known for its pleasing taste, authentic flavours, and traditional style. So let’s begin to get indulged in this decadent French dessert. Clafoutis is a baked French dessert primarily made by combining many fresh fruits into a thick flan-like batter, then arranged in a buttered dish and baked to perfection at the end. This world-famous dessert originated from the Limousin region of France, probably somewhere between the 19th century and then spread globally.

How is a clafoutis traditionally prepared?

The French style of making this fruity dessert involves preparing it with various fresh fruits, including red or black cherries, plum, raspberry, blackberry, cranberry, apple, and pears. Cherry is one of the essential ingredients used in the making because a traditional French clafoutis is made entirely with fresh flesh or sometimes even with the kernels of cherries added in the base that truly brings out the essence and the rich flavours of this fruit-based French dessert. The batter is then baked, and finally, after getting it out from the oven, it is dusted with powdered sugar and served either lukewarm or cold. Making clafoutis is, in fact, a lot easier than most French delicacies because it's simple and fuss-free to make with ingredients that are not too hard to find.
