    Mirabelles clafoutis tart

    A summer french tart

  • Related Posts:

  • A clafoutis is a classic French dessert, it is usually made with cherries, but you can actually make it with any kind of fruits, I chose the mirabelles plums. The dough of the clafoutis is made with milk, butter, flour, eggs and sugar, this mix is poured on top of the tart with the fruits and then you leave it to jellify or set. Don’t you think that is the easiest recipe ever?

    It is extremely easy, you don’t have to have any culinary abilities, in fact, I actually didn’t like mine so much, I don’t think it looks pretty, because once it cooled it looked ugly, but it was still delicious and also it gave a home-baked look. I replaced the cherries for the plums because in France you can find mirabelles, and I just love them, they are beautiful, delicious and they have the most beautiful name that a fruit could have, I think that if I have a daughter I would name her Mirabelle.

    I really recommend you to enjoy this tart just when it is out of the oven, it is so delicious when it is warm. For me this tart really transports me to the south of Chile, in a rainy day, with the smell of wet grass and enjoyed with a cup of tea, I don’t think I need anything else in my life, for me that is happiness.

    Please do this recipe, it is extremely easy, you only need some minutes and it is so delicious. If you are lucky enough to enjoy a summer in France, don’t hesitate to try mirabelles in the market, they are superb, sweet and juicy, everything you are expecting from a fruit.
