Fresh Fruit Clafouti
A clafouti is a county-French dessert that's made by topping a layer of fresh, ripe fruit with a cake-like batter and baking it. It makes a great addition to a brunch menu.
1 cake (six servings)
1 ½ cups sliced ripe nectarines, plums, peaches, or pitted cherries (about 10 ounces cut fruit)
2/3 cup fat-free evaporated milk
1 large egg, beaten, or ¼ cup egg substitute
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg, preferably freshly grated
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sifted powdered sugar
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare an 8-inch glass pie plate with nonstick pan spray. Layer fruit in the pie plate.
2. Combine the milk, egg, flour, sugar, vanilla, nutmeg and salt in a food processor. Process until smooth; pour over the fruit.
3. Bake 35 to 40 minutes, or until puffed and golden brown. Serve warm or at room temperature. At serving time, sprinkle with powdered sugar and cut into 6 slices.
