Comice Pear Clafoutis

by Charlotte March
Comice Pear Clafoutis


Salted butter for the dish
2 firm-ripe Comice pears (peeled, cored, and sliced lengthwise about 1/3 in. thick)
1 cup whole milk
3 large eggs
1/3 cup plus 1 tbsp. granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon orange zest
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg, preferably freshly grated
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup flour
Powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 175°C. Butter a shallow baking dish and arrange pears in an attractive pattern over the bottom. (Fruit will rise to the top as batter bakes.) Put milk, eggs, granulated sugar, vanilla, orange zest, nutmeg, salt, and flour (in this order) in a blender and whirl until very smooth and frothy, 1 minute. Pour batter over pears. Bake until clafoutis is well browned and a little puffed, about 50 minutes. Let clafoutis cool on a rack about 15 minutes. Serve warm, sprinkled with powdered sugar.

It is important for me to feel a connection with those who grow my food, I am happy to say Sarah Green's Organics fulfills that. I enjoy Sarah's weekly newsletter detailing what is available, & ideas of how to cook specific vegetables.
