A box of dead-ripe peaches from Trader Joe inspired me to adapt a very easy raspberry clafouti dessert recipe.

Peach clafouti (or clafoutis) easy custard and fruit dessert

Here is my version:

• 1/2 cup all-purpose flour (I used whole wheat pastry flour)
• 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons (3 ozs) sugar
• Pinch kosher salt
• 3 large eggs
• 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
• Finely grated zest of 1/2 lemon
• 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons (3 ozs) whole milk
• 3 cups ripe peach wedges (about 3 peaches or so), peeled and cut into wedges
• dash vanilla
• Confectioners’ sugar, for dusting
Step 1
Preheat the oven to 350°. Generously butter a 9-inch gratin dish or pie plate. In a bowl, whisk the eggs, butter and lemon zest until smooth. Whisk in the sugar and a pinch of salt. Add the milk and whisk until light and very smooth, a couple of minutes. Add a dash of vanilla. Whisk in the flour until no lumps. Pour the batter into the gratin dish and top with the peach wedges in a pattern from the center, or just any which way (rustic!).
Step 2
Bake for about 30 minutes, until the clafoutis is just set and golden. If using a glass pie plate, raise temp. slightly, might take extra 10-15 minutes. Let cool slightly. Dust with confectioners’ sugar, cut into wedges and serve.

Even though I forgot to do the sugar dusting, it was FABULOUS.
