Hellooooooo my friends it’s September isn’t that wild? Are you ready for summer to be over? I am for sure, I really was that girl that got a pumpkin spice latte the day it came out, even if it was still August. I won’t apologize for it either so don’t even ASK. But, before we get to this fricken Blueberry Clafoutis, I hope we all had lovely Labor Day Weekends! I started mine off seeing the Jonas Brothers in concert (for the 4th time!!) and crying my eyes out, and finished by moving into my apartment! What a time to be alive, I can’t wait to start cooking in my tiny bb kitchen.
Today’s recipe is a classic by Queen Julia Child, one that I’ve similarly tried before here, but this Blueberry Clafoutis is the real deal. Kind of like a cross between a pancake and a dutch baby, a clafoutis is maybe one of the easiest desserts to make. It can be done in one blender (or one bowl with a whisk and some determination), and be in the oven in 10 minutes. It can be customized with other fruits and spices however you’d like. Sound good? Cool cool cool we’ll get to that in just a second.
Before we get started you know what’s coming next, here are 5 things to be happy about today!!
ONE. Coming home from a long day and pouring yourself a glass of wine.
TWO. A phone call that turns your day around.
THREE. Having a crush.
FOUR. Finding a new song that you never want to turn off.
FIVE. Feeling a chill in the air.
Julia Child’s Blueberry Clafoutis
- Butter; to grease the pan
- 1¼ cups whole milk
- ⅔ cup granulated sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1 Tbsp vanilla
- pinch salt
- 1 cup flour
- 1 pint blueberries
- powdered sugar; for topping
- Preheat your oven to 350°F and generously butter a medium-sized (I used 9×13 inch) baking dish.
- In a blender or large bowl, add the milk, ⅓ cup sugar, eggs, vanilla, salt, and flour. Blend for 1 minute until smooth, or whisk vigorously until no lumps are present.
- Pour a ¼-inch amount of batter into the baking dish and place in the oven for 2 minutes, until slightly set. Add the blueberries, sprinkle the remaining ⅓ cup sugar evenly over them, and then pour on the remaining batter.
- Bake for 50 minutes, until set and slightly golden on top. Dust with powdered sugar before serving, warm, cold, or room temp!!
