Country Clafouti
(makes 6 servings)

2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup whole milk
1/4 cup whipping cream
2 Tablespoons Amaretto liqueur (or 3/4 teaspoon almond extract)
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 eggs
2 cups fresh fruit (blackberries, raspberries, blueberries,
strawberries, peaches, pears etc.) frozen fruit may be substituted,
thaw and drain off all extra juices

Heat oven to 425 degrees. Place butter in a 10" round (shallow,
straight-sided ceramic, porcelain or earthenware work best) baking
dish. Place dish in oven 2 to 4 min. or just until butter is
melted. Remove baking dish from oven and tilt to to coat the bottom
and sides with butter.

In a large bowl stir together flour, sugar and salt. Slowly whisk
in the milk and whipping cream until smooth. Add liqueur or almond
extract and vanilla. Whisk in eggs one at a time (one at a time is
important to remember) the batter will be thin.

Place fruit in a single layer on the bottom of the baking dish.
Immediately pour batter over fruit.

Bake at 425 degrees for 12 min. Reduce oven temperature to 350
degrees and continue baking for an additional 35 to 45 minutes or
until puffed and very dark brown around edges and a knife inserted
in the center comes out clean.

Cool 10 to 20 minutes before serving.

Best served warm with whipped cream, a dusting of powdered sugar
or a fruit sauce.

1 cup whipping cream
1 Tablespoon sugar

In a small bowl, combine whipping cream and sugar. Beat at medium-high
until soft peaks form.

Fruit Sauce

3/4 cup (your choice) preserves
3 tablespoons Brandy, or orange juice

Heat preserves in a small sauce pan over low heat until melted,
stir in brandy or orange juice. Spoon over individual servings of
Clafouti. Serve.
