Coconut and Plum Clafoutis | At Down Under | Viviane Perenyi

Paprika and I are back from our short break in Sydney.
Our stay was nice and oddly I did not take a lot of pictures. This is so unlike me… And the photos I took make a very heterogeneous mix. I may share them at some point when I figure out a theme.

Until then, here’s a plum clafoutis I did to use the coconut milk I had left in the fridge.

Funny to see how certain desserts make a regular appearance on our table and the blog. Clafoutis is one of them.
Versatile and easy are maybe the reasons that explain this choice.
Here I like how the tartness of the fruit is balanced with the sweetness of coconut. A simple way to enjoy summer stone fruits.

Coconut and Plum Clafoutis | At Down Under | Viviane Perenyi

Coconut and Plum Clafoutis

- 3 plums halved and pitted
- 3 eggs
- 75g flour
- 70g brown sugar
- 250ml coconut milk
- 50g unsalted butter
- A pinch of salt
- 1 tbsp of plum brandy

Preheat oven to 180°C. Place butter in a small oven proof dish and let it melt in the oven. In a bowl, whip together eggs, salt and sugar. Add gradually flour and mix. The batter should be smooth. Remove the melted butter from the oven and pour it in the batter. Add coconut milk, plum brandy and stir. Grease the sides and bottom of the dish/ shallow plates and dust lightly with flour. Place fruits cut side up in the dish and pour the batter. Bake for 35 minutes or until golden on top. Sprinkle icing sugar on top and serve still warm.

Paprika et moi sommes de retour de notre petit séjour à Sydney.
Ce fut bien et bizarrement je n’ai pas pris beaucoup de photos. Cela ne me ressemble pas… Et les photos prises forment un mélange hétéroclite. Je les partagerai sans doute lorsque j’aurai trouvé une cohérence d’ensemble.

En attendant, voici un clafoutis au coco et aux prunes que j’ai fait pour utiliser le reste de lait de coco que j’avais au frigo.

Intéressant de voir comment certains desserts font une apparition récurrente sur notre table et le blog. Le clafoutis est l’un d’eux.
Versatile et facile sont sans doute les raisons qui expliquent ce choix.
Ici, j’aime comment l’acidité du fruit est compensé par la douceur du coco. Une façon simple de profiter des fruits d’été.
