This French dessert consists of a custard-like batter filled with frozen raspberries which is then baked in the oven. Serve warm with freshly whipped cream.
What is a clafoutis? A clafoutis is a French dessert, traditionally made with cherries baked in a flan-style custard batter. I've added a twist to the classic with my Raspberry Clafoutis made with frozen raspberries. This means I can make it at any time of the year.
Raspberries are without a doubt my favourite berry. If you're also a fan, you'll appreciate my wide selection of raspberry desserts including Chocolate and Raspberry Skillet Brownie, Apple and Raspberry Crumble Slice and Grace's Baked Raspberry Cheesecake.
- Raspberries: Feel free to substitute frozen raspberries for your favourite berries or cherries.
- Eggs: As with all my baking, these are a standard size 7 egg.
- Sugar: This recipe calls for caster sugar over regular white sugar. Caster sugar is finer and dissolves more easily into the batter.

Step by step instructions:
Preheat the oven to 180°C fan bake. Grease a shallow baking dish with butter.
Whisk together the eggs, sugar and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Pour in the milk and whisk again. Sift in the flour and mix until there are no lumps.
Place half the raspberries in the base of the dish and pour over the batter. Scatter the rest of the raspberries on top.
Bake for 50 minutes until golden brown. The custard should be just set and only have a slight jiggle.
Let it sit for at least 10 minutes then dust with icing sugar. Serve warm with whipped cream, thick greek yoghurt or ice cream.
A clafoutis is a baked dessert made from a flan-style batter filled with fruit. This dessert originates in France and is traditionally made with cherries, although any type of berries will work.
Yes! Depending on the time of year, availibility and affordability you could use fresh or frozen raspberries, cherries, strawberries etc.
A clafoutis can be served warm or cold. If you have leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Serve cold or heat in the microwave or oven.
