Definition: Clafouti

A rustic dessert from the French region of Limousin that is a cross between a pancake and a custard. While traditionally made with cherries that have not been pitted (the pits release more flavor), clafouti is also made with plums, blackberries, apples, and other fruits. Also spelled clafoutis.

Clafoutis is delicious and so very easy to make. I've never thought to make a plum one. That might be good. The recipe linked above is sure to be a good one. I sometimes make my cherry clafoutis with almonds or almond extract.

i've never heard of this before - but it DOES sound kind of interesting. i like the thought of combining foods that we're familiar with to make a new dessert and the idea that pits in cherries enhance the flavor - well that's something new to me as well.
