Easy strawberry clafoutis recipe, the original clafoutis recipe is made with whole cherries, juicy strawberries pair so well with the thick flan, a delicious dessert!
Clafoutis is a thick and firm flan that contains flour, although the original recipe calls for cherries, it can be made with any fruit, it is very easy to make and involves no mixer.
This is a very straight forward recipe, add all the dry ingredients to a bowl, mix, add all the liquids into a pitcher, mix, pour the liquids into the dry ingredients into a thin stream while whisking constantly, pour into a high sided pie mold, arrange the strawberries nicely and bake for 60 minutes at 340°F (170°C).
Strawberries are so juicy and as soon as in contact with sugar, they will release a lot of juice, that can’t be helped, but strawberries, juices and flan mingled together make such a delicious dessert!
I hope you enjoy this recipe and if you did, drop me a comment, thanks!
