From my kitchen: Clafoutis aux pêches / Peach clafouti

My weekly trips to farmers market have got me thinking about shifting seasons. I confess, I could hardly imagine living in a place where the sun is always shining and the snow never falls from the sky. Shifting seasons are part of my DNA, and, perhaps even more so, of my kitchen. Seasonal fruit is the best example: every year I'm waiting impatiently for the first strawberries who epitomize the true beginning of summer to me. When strawberries begin to disappear, I gorge myself on apricots (my all time favorite kind of fruit, alongside with raspberries) and peaches (the stars of my today's dessert). And I already know that next week, peaches will be gone and first apples and pears appear on the farmers market stalls. Fresh fruit guides me through the summer and it's that much more precious when I know that it's only here for a while. I always try to make the best out of every kind, and I'm more than happy to share another delicious recipe with you! What is your favorite kind of fruit? Do you have a signature summer recipe? 

Peach clafouti

You'll need:

* 4 peaches
* 4 eggs
* 125g all-purpose flour
* 25g butter
* 300ml milk
* 100g sugar
* a pinch of salt

1. Butter the pie mold. Cut peaches into cubes and dispose them in the mold.
2. Blend eggs, sugar and a pinch of salt together. Add flour, then milk and blend all well together. 
3. Pour the dough over the peaches.
4. Bake in the oven preheated to 180°C for 40 minutes.
5. Serve warm.

Bon appétit!


  1. MMM!! This looks like a dream!! Yummy :)

    This looks so yummy well done !!



  3. what an easy recipe! and how yummy it looks! I'm pretty much drooling here :P peaches and apricots are delicious but don't grow in my country. from Estonian fruits I like strawberries, raspberries and also grapes which I grow in my garden in addition to tiny kiwis :)

  4. Those peaches look amazing. I'm very inspired to make a dessert like this with the last of summer's peaches. They're the best!

  5. Yum! I love anything to do with peaches!
    Thanks for sharing, Ivana!

  6. I lust for peaches and wait for the each year! I would love to try and dish like this...but i always end up eating them raw before i get much of a chance to cook with them!



  7. Oh wow, this looks so delicious!! I am going to have to try this because fresh peaches are one of my favorites! I also love fresh pears. I don't have a signature dish but I tried both of them this summer wrapped in foil with a little brown sugar and put on the grill.

  8. Looks so good! I'm a big berry fan, but I love peaches and nectarines this time of year too

  9. Gosh I adore peaches. And I agree with you about the seasons- want and need them! I never want to live in a place like California where it is always warm and sunny. I like the cold, cloudy days just as much (if not more, actually).

  10. I'm such a fan of peaches. Your dish looks awesome Ivana! Another blogger posted a peach pie. OMG'd I was dying. HAHAHA

  11. Wow that looks soooo yummmyy !!!!

  12. I've actually never baked or cooked with peaches before - thanks for this wonderful idea!

  13. I really enjoy the change of seasons too...although this year I'm really trying to cling to summer! Fall seems to be on it's way and I'm not quite ready.

    Also that dessert looks really, really great.

  14. oh I love peaches. Peaches are my favorite fruit. Great recipe. Thank you for sharing.
