Peach Clafouti

peach clafouti 2

Peaches are all I can think about this time of year. And every year, it’s the same. It’s the break between spring strawberries and late summer figs and blueberries. Peaches are the bright, juicy bridge carrying me into fall.

Every summer, when our counter is covered in peaches, cobbler is the first dessert we think of, but I’m here to tell you that I have a new favorite summer dessert.

The clafouti.

Last year, it was blackberry.

This year, it’s peaches.

No matter what you want to put in it – blueberries, cherries, or apricots – a clafouti is one of the quickest and easiest desserts to whip up. It’s almost a cross between a custard and a dutch baby pancake….which means it’s perfect dessert and it makes a killer breakfast.

The batter bakes up into a creamy mixture that wraps around the slices of peaches and the top crisps up, leaving a crust on top that’s just begging for a splash of milk or ice cream.

Plus, a stress-free dessert like this means it’s especially easy to make for guests and customize, too! Have someone with a gluten intolerance? Try swapping in gluten free flour in the batter. Lactose intolerant? Use lactose free milk in the batter – easy, peasy. Did you know lactose free milk and milk products are real milk products, just without the lactose? They taste great and provide the same nutrients as regular dairy foods so it’s a simple swap to make in every recipe.

Still looking for your perfect summer dessert (or breakfast)? This might just be it.
