Pear Clafouti (kla-foo-TEE), also known a Clafoutis, is a traditional fruit dessert from the Limousin region of France and is often served as a breakfast dish. The name clafoutis comes from the verb clafir, a word that means to fill, because after you arrange the fruit on a buttered baking dish, you fill the pan with an egg batter.
This Pear Clafouti is an easy-to-make dessert using pear suspended in a batter similar to that used for crepes. Traditionally black cherries are used in a clafouti, but other fruits can be substituted as pitted plums, peaches, berries, sliced apples or any other fresh fruit, if you wish. If you want to bake a crowd-pleasing fruit dessert without going to the trouble of rolling out a pie crust, make this Pear Clafouti.
