I used frozen fruit mix , defrosted, great. Used an earthenware dish and mine took about an hour to cook in the middle, well worth the wait.

Just tried this recipe - finished product was delicious and looked great. Amazingly quick and simple to make - will definitely be making this again

Agree with some of the other comments though - ours took a good 40 minutes until the middle set. After 25 mins, the middle was still wet, so would advise expecting to hang on a bit longer for it to cook properly.

Worth the wait though ;)

Yum. Enough said!

Except that I had a small issue in that it ended up in a deliciously almond-y topping and a more wet, soft fruit like bottom. Unlike the picture above i didn't have any fruit showing, just cake.

In respone to cookie1 i did use frozen fruit and of course let them defrost, so maybe this is where the problem arose!

This looks lovely. Sadly here in Western Australia I can't buy any fresh berries at the moment. How do you think it would go with frozen berries?

Clafoutis is absolutely sublime made with cherries (stones removed). It's meant to be lightly browned on top and set but still quite soft inside, not runny though. I have made it with plums too, and I have seen a recipe that used 6 fresh figs cut into wedges, with raspberries

i agree with Alice, very undercooked, had to cook another 30 mins, is it meant to be blancmangey?????

This tasted delicious (and worked well with vanilla cream - good tip, Spela!) but even after 45-50 minutes cooking it was totally undercooked in the centre (i.e. very runny). Is this how it is meant to be? Any tips? Does it just need a higher heat?

Used milk instead of cream, worked just as well!

Delicious! The almond gives a lovely nutty flavour and it is surprisingly easy to make. I am tempted to try this again with different fruit. I also agree that it does not have to rest

First ever clafoutis made to the tee. Perfect!
I made it for a dinner party of student friends and this was the perfect light posh dessert to finish the evening off.

This was really easy to make and very tasty, my friends were surprised at my cooking skills. I used redcurrants instead of blueberries as I couldn't find any blueberries on the day

My first ever clafoutis, I made mine with plums because that is what I had, and I macerated them first, it came out really light and delicious. Very simple to make, I will be trying it with other fruits.

My mother and I have made this on separate occasions (and using different ovens) and both needed to leave it in the oven for longer than the suggested time, around 15-20mins longer.

Really nice. I think this is best eaten warm, so about 30 mins out of the oven, but have also eaten hot and cold and still delicious. One of the easiest and most impressive recipes I have tried.

This recipe is sublime & I am loathed to share the secrets of such a fantasically easy dessert which is so delicious.

No resting.....I mean in my house EVERYONE loved it & this will be a firm favourite especially for surpise guests!

THANKS

This recipe is brilliant, I make it every Autumn when I have been blackberrying. I usually use just blackberries and blueberries, whatever I have, it is delicious. I don't rest it for 4 hours - 10 minutes is the most I can wait when it's out of the oven!

Preperation and cooking times
Ready in 40 mins, plus 4 hours resting

I intend to make this, and I wonder where in the method of this recipe does it say to rest it for four hours?
