Clafoutis [sometimes spelled clafouti] is a popular French dessert, traditionally made with cherries suspended in a pancake-like batter and baked.

This version uses fresh, plump apricots instead, and it is simply divine.

      I need to try this again and take the custard recommendation, that sounds even tastier.

      This came out of my oven 20 minutes ago, half of it has been inserted into the mouths of the critics [family] and it's gotten great reviews! I followed your recipe to a T and it came out splendidly. I forgot to sprinkle on a little sugar afterwards but I liked the ever-so-slightly tart taste of the apricots.

      It would go perfectly with cream or custard, and on its own!

      Thumbs up :)
