Gordon Ramsay’s dessert is bursting with berry and almond flavours, and can be prepared well in advance - in fact, it's best to make the batter 24 hours ahead

  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.

I made this for the first time and I tried doing it in one large dish. Whether the oven wasn't hot enough or not I'm not quite sure but it took a long long time to cook. When I took it out in the end it was still rather moist in the middle (but I wasn't sure whether it was supposed to be like that or not - I got the impression it should be between a cake & a flan..) Anyway, tasted lovely with custard (!) and for larger dishes would bake for longer.

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.

If you are using one dish instead of 6 individual ones, I would turn up the oven slightly (+220C) and bake for longer. (Keep your eye on it after 30 mins)
