Serves: 6 servings
Ingredients
  • 2 large pears
  • 40 grams or 1.41 oz of salted butter
  • 20 grams or .71 oz of butter for buttering the mould
  • 4 eggs (I used medium sized eggs)
  • 200 ml or 6.76 fluid ounces of whole fat milk
  • 100 grams or 3.52 oz of all purpose flour
  • 65 grams or 2.29 oz of granulated sugar
  • one teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon of ground cardamom
  • powdered or icing sugar for dusting the finished clafoutis
  • baking dish
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 210°C or 410°F. Peel the pears, cut in half and set one half aside. The remaining three halves should be sliced into even size pieces along the length of the pears. Set aside.
  2. Melt the butter and set it aside to cool down.
  3. Crack the eggs into a small bowl and add the milk, the cardamom and the vanilla extract, then mix to combine. In a separate bowl combine the flour and the sugar, then little by little add the egg mixture to the bowl. Lastly add the melted butter and stir until everything is well combined.
  4. Generously butter your baking dish or tart pan, place the half you didn't slice into the centre of the baking dish then arrange the slices in a circular pattern, next carefully pour in the batter. (If you'd like you can add a sprinkling of sugar over the centre pear half.)
  5. Place the baking dish in the centre of oven and bake for 10 minutes then reduce the heat to 180°C or 356°F and continue to bake for 20 more minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool; serve warm or cold with a dusting of powdered sugar.
