Savory Sights: Berry Clafoutis with Scented Mascarpone

You guys are making me hungry. Seriously, I can't even do my job without my stomach letting out a few growls each time.

Today it was reader crispet1 who knocked me over the edge. She posted this beauty, a Raspberry and Blueberry Clafoutis with Quenelle of Orange Scented Mascarpone, in the Savory Sights group.

Clafoutis is such a great dessert, not only is it fun to say, but the way the fruit melds with the batter (which is similar to pancake batter) just makes me start drooling.

Post your great food (or party!) photos to the Savory Sights group and we just might post it here!

Yeah Im not sure what the deal was with me. The full story is that I was at a wine tasting and was so full and had so much wine. When that happens, I usually get real sensitive to taste. In theory I had expected to love the dessert. Oh well, maybe next time.

crispet1, you thought the batter tasted like scrambled eggs??? That's interesting. I actually have never had the full calorie/full fat version, so maybe the original recipe has more eggs and tastes different. I've served the health conscious version about 10 times to guests and everyone loves it. I never have leftovers.

:ROTFL: LOL. Oh man. When I read this dessert off the menu I said to myself, "A clafoowhat!?" It looks delish and my bf said it really was, especially with the orange scented mascarpone, which I did enjoy. I just have a huge aversion to eggs. And once I took that bite that to me tasted like scrambled eggs, it was all over. Such a shame. Im not one to turn down dessert. :piggie:

Ooo, that's a total bummer that it tasted yucky. I TOTALLY thought it sounded like something sexual, too!!! I was hoping I'd have something new to try with my husband tonight. ;)

Rubia, nope, sadly I did not make it. I had this for dessert at a wine tasting earlier this week. Its a shame it looks so pretty because I thought the batter tasted like scrambled eggs (and I HATE eggs). Oh yeah and to me, clafoutis sounds like a sexual favor...not a dessert. But it looks darn savory, and thats the important thing!

Oops; made a mistake there. It isn't a Weight Watchers Recipe after all but another low fat, lower calorie version I found. When I didn't have it on hand, I've made it without the fruit liqueur and it was still really good. I also often serve it plain, without added fruits and yogurt. Hope you like it! SUMMER FRUIT CLAFOUTIS 1 lb. of assorted fresh fruits such as blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, cherries, courrants 4 tbsp. of any soft fruit liqueur such as kirsch or framboise 4 tbsp. nonfat dry milk 1 cup all-purpose flour pinch of salt 1/4 cup of superfine sugar 2 eggs, beaten 1-1/4 cups skim milk 1 tsp. vanilla extract 2 tsp superfine sugar for dusting To Serve: Assorted soft fruits Low fat yogurt Place the assorted fruits in a mixing bowl and spoon it over the fruit liqueur. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour. In a large bowl, combine the nonfat dry milk, flour, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and gradually whisk in the eggs, milk and vanilla extract using a whisk until smooth. Transfer to a pitcher and set aside for 30 minutes. Line a 9"/23 cm round ovenproof dish with baking parchment and spoon in all the fruits and their juices. Whisk the batter again and pour it over the fruits, stand the dish on a cookie shet and bake at 400 degrees for 40-50 minutes until firm, risen and golden brown. Dust with superfind sugar. Serve immediately with extra fruits and low-fat plain yogurt.
