Blueberry Clafoutis is a favourite dish of mine, especially on cold autumn evenings. It’s a great dish if you love hot fruit and fluffy sponge.
I love this recipe and it’s safe to say my family do too. It is made all the time in our house. Mostly with blueberries but sometimes with raspberries and even cherries. It’s a great mix of sponge and fruit which happens to a mix of two of my favourite things.
If you love hot fruit and enjoy a hot sponge this is the pudding for you!
It’s really quick to mix up the batter and easy to pour it over the fruit and cook. If you want to make it in advanced you can make the batter a few hours before and give it a quick whisk before pouring over. Make sure it’s room temperature when it goes in to the oven.

Pouring the batter for the Blueberry Clafoutis. I love this bit as the smell of the orange from the batter really stands out. Just pour over the batter and pop it straight in the oven. 35 minutes later the kitchen will smell amazing and you’ll be ready to eat your Blueberry Clafoutis fresh from the oven. It will be golden brown and will have risen in the oven. It’s a great dessert which only takes a few minutes to combine.
