Ingredients

  • 85g flaked almond , lightly toasted
  • 25g plain flour
  • good pinch sea salt
  • 140g golden caster sugar
  • 3large free range eggs
  • 4large free range egg yolks
  • 375ml double cream
  • 375g blueberry (3 punnets)
  • a little softened butter , for buttering dishes
  • sifted icing sugar , to dust

Method

  • STEP 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.)

  • STEP 2

    When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 200C/gas 6/fan 180C. Butter eight 10cm gratin dishes. Scatter the blueberries in the bottom.

  • STEP 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.

RECIPE TIPS
IN TWO LARGE DISHES

If you prefer, you can make the clafoutis in two 20cm gratin dishes (or shallow flan dishes). Bake them at 190C/gas 5/fan 170C, for about 25-30 minutes.
