Lemon Blueberry Clafoutis

by Heidi @ Food Doodles on March 2, 2012

So I have made a clafoutis here on Food Doodles before, but this months column in our local paper was on eggs and I could not get a clafoutis out of my mind, so here it is!  I mixed things up by using blueberries this time.  I love blueberries so much.  They’re my favorite berry, but occasionally I’ll go crazy for strawberries too.  I kind of think it has something to do with the seeds that makes me not enjoy raspberries and blackberries as much, but who knows?

So I also used frozen berries in this one, which is why the top is completely purple.  The color does bleed a lot, but at least it’s a pretty color, right?  I also used khorsasan/Kamut flour for this one, and as you can see in some of the pictures, it formed almost a crust on the bottom with a much more custardy layer on top of that, and then all the blueberries on the very top.  I have no idea if that was the flour, or maybe because I used frozen berries or maybe because I really loaded it up with berries?  The last one I posted didn’t turn out like that at all, but I used fresh raspberries, and whole wheat pastry flour for that one.  Either way it was still delicious and still a go-to dessert for me.  I’ll admit, I even had some for breakfast the next morning 😀

In other news…. Food Doodles just recently turned one!  Which means I’ve been blogging for an entire year!  That is incredibly hard to believe, I can’t believe how fast the time has gone(even though I did take almost 2 whole months off in the middle!)  I can’t believe how much things have changed around here, how much I’ve learned, and how much I still enjoy blogging!  But most of all I’m thankful to my readers.  Really, without you, Food Doodles would be nothing, so thank you!

I’m looking forward to a lot more good food, a lot of learning experiences for me and a ton more improvements around here in the future.  If there’s anything you’d like to see, or like to see more of(or less of ;)) here on Food Doodles, let me know!  I would love to hear any suggestions or ideas you have for me :)

I’ll be honest, while i’ve definitely eaten it before, I really had no idea what made a clafoutis well, a “clafoutis” until I just googled it. This version looks delicious. Blueberries are one of my favorite berries in desserts and one of those things I buy year round regardless of whether they’re in season or not.
Congrats on hitting the 1 year mark! I just hit publish on my 300th post the other day and thought “wow, I sure do have a lot to say!” haha

I love the purple! I’ve never had clafoutis but this one looks delicious. I’m so ready for blueberry season.

I had no idea that you had been blogging for only one year. I love the variety of things you post so I have no suggestions. :)

Woo! Happy blogiversary Heidi, and huge congrats to you! I couldn’t think of a more perfect way to celebrate than by enjoying a huge slice of this gorgeous blueberry clafoutis. This is one seriously decadent looking dessert! I saw it on pinterest and pinned it before I even knew it was from you… I thought it looked very familiar, though, so I wasn’t at all surprised to land here after clicking on the image.

Awesome work, Heidi! Mouthwatering pics and great recipes. Just keep it up, that’s all I can say! Oh, and we want pictures of the little one! 😉

I have only made a clafoutis one time and it was a cranberry version. Absolutely delicious and made me wonder why I never made it before. However with this recipe (I LOVE lemon desserts) I may have clafoutis on the mind too! Congrats on turning one!
