  1. Grind the almonds to a very fine powder in a small food processor then blend in the flour and salt. Add the sugar, whole eggs, yolks and cream. Whizz until creamy smooth. (If you’re making ahead, tip the batter into a jug at this point and store in the fridge for up to 24 hours.)

  3. Give the batter a good stir, pour into the dishes and bake for about 18-20 minutes, or until risen and lightly firm. Dust with icing sugar and serve warm.

Never tried blueberry and almond in clafoutis before, and this is absolutely delicious. The almonds add a little nutty flavor and texture. Will keep this to my favorite recipe book!

This is absolutely delicious. I've never made a clafoutis before and this was a real hit. After the first one, I was asked to make it again the next day! Any time I want a special pudding, out comes the clafoutis.

Tasted lovely, easy to make and good if you make in advance. I cooked mine in one silicone baking dish and it still worked out great. I also found that most people had never heard of it so it was a novelty.

As OP stated, took quite a bit longer to cook

Very nice. Unfortunately we do not have golden castor sugar so I used normal without any problems. Very easy to make and rated well with my guests.
