A clafoutis is a flavourful, super moist, dreamy dessert; fresh apricots provide a tart sweetness to a flan-like cake that’s best served warm with a scoop of good vanilla ice cream.

  • 14 fresh apricots, halved and pitted
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, for greasing pan


  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees and heavily grease a pie plate with unsalted butter.
  • Arrange the apricots, cut side down, in the pie plate until the entire surface of the plate has been covered.
  • Add the flour, salt, sugar, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla extract and milk to a blender. Pulse until all ingredients are combined and the result is a thin batter.
  • Pour the batter over the apricots. Place the pie plate in the oven and bake for 60 minutes. Once the top is very lightly golden in colour, remove from oven and let rest 10-15 minutes before serving.
