Raspberry Clafoutis

By Marge Perry & David Bonom
A clafoutis rises dramatically as it cooks, and starts falling the minute it comes out of the oven. Don’t let that dissuade you from making it, even a little in advance: it is just as delicious—and also appealing looking—when fallen. Clafoutis are generally served right out of the skillet.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°
  2. Combine the raspberries and 2 tablespoons of the sugar in a bowl.
