When Paprika came back home, yesterday afternoon, the clafoutis was still warm, ready to be served.
The recipe said ‘serves 6’, but somehow we ate the whole clafoutis as a late afternoon snack !
Traditionally prepared with cherries, I baked this clafoutis with apricots and peaches.
It’s simple, easy and versatile too.
We were ready then to go to the Botanic garden for a free jazz concert…
And it was crowded ! We didn’t get a chance to see the stage, but still managed to hear the songs…
