Cinnamon & Stone Fruit Clafoutis

Makes 8-12 Servings

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lbs. stone fruit (plums, cherries, peaches, nectarines and apricots)
  • 5 Heinen’s large cage-free eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. Heinen’s ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. fine salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups Heinen’s whole milk
  • 3 tbsp. Heinen’s unsalted butter, melted, plus more for coating the baking dish
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting

Instructions

  1. Arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 350°F. Generously coat a 9×13-inch baking dish with butter.
  2. Halve the fruit and remove and discard the pits. Cut into 1/2-inch to 3/4-inch-thick slices. Arrange the sliced fruit in a single layer in the prepared baking dish
  3. Combine the eggs, sugar, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Whisk until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is smooth.
  4. Add the flour and whisk until just smooth.
  5. Add the milk, 3 Tbsp. butter and vanilla and whisk until just combined. Pour this mixture over the fruit in the prepared baking dish. Pouring is slowly is key to prevent the fruit from floating.
  6. Bake for about 50 minutes, or until set, puffed and lightly golden-brown around the edges.
  7. Place the baking dish on a wire rack and let cool for 15 minutes (the clafoutis will deflate).
  8. Cut into squares, dust with powdered sugar and serve warm.
