Apricot-Yogurt Clafoutis

apricotclaf0 The whole week already I had a craving for fresh Apricots, therefore went out early this morning for shopping in the mall. To my surprise there where plenty of great Apricots, not the small kind but large and ripe ones. I quickly got all other ingredients for a nice Apricot Clafoutis, at home. Clafoutis are simple to prepare but like all other simple dishes they rely also on quality ingredients, eggs, cream, milk and of course; fruit. Traditionally Clafoutis are prepared with cherries but plums, apple and apricot versions are well received nowadays. apricotclaf1

Originally from Limousin, the dish’s name comes from Occitan clafotís, from the verb clafir, meaning “to fill up” (implied: “the batter with cherries”). Clafoutis apparently spread throughout France during the 19th century.When other kinds of fruit, such as plums, prunes, apples, cranberries or blackberries are used instead of cherries, the dish is called a “flognarde” (sometimes spelled “flaugnarde”).Some purists strongly advise against de-pitting the cherries used in a clafoutis. According to them, the pits release a wonderful flavor when the dish is cooked. A traditional Limousin clafoutis contains pits. If the pits are removed, the clafoutis will be milder. apricotclafgrater
