Peach clafoutis is a great dessert or coffee cake recipe. I have seen a lot of clafoutis recipes but today I’m showing a fail proof way to make it. Ready to learn this easy how to make peach clafoutis recipe? Lets get started!
I know, clafoutis is a French bake or dessert recipe an should be made with cherries. But what do you do when you do not have cherries laying around and not into cherries from a can? Indeed then you take what you do have. I had peaches so what better to than make a fresh peach recipe.
That is what I did with this clafoutis recipe. There are many ways to make a clafoutis. It usually takes a medium heated oven and a long bake. With this recipe you still get an delicious claufoutis but in half of the time.
Mean reason why I can half the baking time of this recipe is because is I combined this recipe with the baking technique of a Dutch baby. You may not get an even clafoutis but the result and taste more than make up for that. I like the rustic feel this dessert has I hope you as well.
This recipe calls for vanilla sugar. We can buy it in the store but if you can make it very easily yourself. Vanilla sugar is what it says it is. Sugar that is infused with vanilla aroma. If you have used some vanilla pods do not throw them away. Take a jar fill it with sugar and stick the vanilla pods in the sugar. Close the jar and just leave it.
If you do not have vanilla sugar you can substitute with vanilla extract. In this recipe I used 1 tablespoon of vanilla sugar that can be replace with 1½-2 teaspoons of vanilla extract.
Peach clafoutis ingredients
To make this healthy peach recipe you need the following ingredients:
- Fresh peaches
- Vanilla sugar
- Regular sugar
I use the butter just to grease the skillet. There are versions of clafoutis where the batter contains butter or cream.
How to make peach clafoutis
The base of a clafoutis is the batter combined with fruit. So the easiest way to make the batter is in the blender. Put the flour, salt, sugar, vanilla sugar in your blender.
Add the eggs and milk and whisk it into a consistent batter. Scrape the sides of the blender if necessary. Make sure all of the flour at the bottom of the blender is combined in the batter.
I always set the batter aside for at least 10 minutes. The same with pancake batter as well. This to make sure the flour absorbs the liquid in the batter.
Heat your skillet in the oven while it pre heats to 500℉/250℃. Take the skin of the peaches, half them peaches and remove the pit. Thinly slice the peaches.
Leave the skillet in for another 5 minutes before you take it out of the oven. Then put a tablespoon of butter in the skillet. Put all the halved and sliced peaches in the skilled and pour the batter on the peaches. Return into the oven. You have got to work fast to keep the skillet as hot as possible.
Bake the clafoutis for 15 minutes at 500℉/250℃ then turn the heat down to 400℉/200℃ and bake for another 10 minutes. The edges will be puffed up a little and the middle will still be soft. Dust with some icing sugar and you are ready to serve.
