  • About

Clafoutis comes from the Limousin, a flat agricultural area in the center of France, but versions of this simple pudding can be found all over. In the Auvergne, for example, it is known as millard, or flognarde when made with pears. Clafoutis is suited to tart fruits such as apples, plums, and most famously cherries. If you follow tradition like me and leave the pits in to add a hint of bitterness, be sure to warn guests or they may crack a tooth!
