Very Blueberry Clafouti

This blueberry clafouti is somewhere between a fruit-filled pancake and a fruity egg custard. Wrong season for fresh berries? Use frozen berries thawed in a colander and discard the juice. —Ken Hulme, Venice, Florida
  • Total Time
    Prep: 10 min. Bake: 30 min. + standing
  • Makes
    8 servings


  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 16 ounces fresh or frozen unsweetened blueberries
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 400°. Place butter in a 12-in. cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet. Place skillet in oven until butter is melted, 1-2 minutes. Carefully tilt pan to coat bottom and sides with butter. Spread blueberries in bottom of pan. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, flour, milk, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon. Pour egg mixture over blueberries.
  • Bake until center is puffed and edges are browned, 30-35 minutes. Sprinkle with additional cinnamon if desired. Let stand 15 minutes before cutting.
Don’t have a cast-iron skillet? Any 10- to 12-in. oven-safe skillet will do. If all else fails, use a large pie pan. Do not use a plastic-handled or nonstick-lined skillet, as either can produce unhealthy vapors at oven temperatures and cooking times.

    The name of the recipe intrigued me for I've never heard of this. I used huckleberries instead of blueberries and it turned out tasty. If you need a quick dessert, this will do the trick! And I think any fruit that you have on hand will do. There's nothing wrong with this recipe, my husband and I just prefer pie.

    It was my first time making it. Made it as written. It was very fast and easy. I like the fact that there is not much sugar added. Usually I decrease the amount of sugar in a recipe because my family doesn't like really sweet stuff. It turned out perfect. The natural sweetness of the berries was enough. Had it with coffee and later had a piece al amode. Will make it again with mixed berries.

    This was delicious and so easy to make! I used 2 cups of frozen blueberries. I served it for brunch along with scrambled eggs and hash browns. My family loved it and we had fun with the name. :) VFE

    Easy to make. Used blender to stir up ingredients. Fun to watch puff up in oven.
