As we approach summer, I get more excited over the abundance of fruit available. Plums are one of those fruits I don't see enough of in recipes. Most summer recipes are all about the berries. But what about all the gorgeous stone fruit?
I've made clafoutis before and loved how it turned out. If you haven't tried my maple pear clafoutis yet, you must and soon! It's incredible.
I played around with that recipe a bit to thicken the custard and decided to add roasted plums instead of pears. OH MY GOODNESS! I love this version so much more. It's thick without being too bready. There are hints of vanilla and almond which is fabulous with roasted plums.
Roasted Plum Clafoutis Recipe Highlights:
- Roasting the plums brings out the flavor and prevents excess juice from watering down the custard. Roast the plums in a hot oven for 15 minutes and then coat them with a little bit of flour.
- Almond and vanilla extracts are used in the custard adding extra flavor. The almond compliments the concentrated flavor of the roasted plums. It's incredible.
- Heating up the cast iron skillet before pouring in the custard yielded a crispy crust that made the clafoutis easier to cut and serve. Don't skip this part. It makes a huge difference in the texture.
If you are looking for a dessert that's different and highlights some of summer's best stone fruit, this roasted plum clafoutis recipe is a must. I'm certain you and your family will love this firm custardy treat.
