GUEST,Susan-Marie BS: Clafouti - cake or custard? (10) BS: Clafouti - cake or custard? 21 Jul 06


(I see my cookie has expired again)

It's cherry season and I've been trying new recipes. Found one for something called "cherry clafouti" (a french dish) that was essentially a custard with flour mixed in. It was OK, but a little bland, so I went looking for more recipes. I've been amazed at the differences among recipes for "clafouti". One was mostly butter, eggs, and kirsch, and resulted in a cherry cake. Another was more like my first attempt, a custard thickened with flour. So now I'm curious - is a "classic" or "standard" clafouti a cake or a custard?

ANd if you have a great recipe to share, I have more cherries....
