My take on the traditional dessert - it fills the house with a gorgeous aroma of plums, lemon and vanilla.
This is soooo good. I've never cooked plums before and never made a clafouti. Didn't even know what it was. But this is delicious. I didn't have lemon zest so left it out, but I don't think it made a big difference. It was just fine without. Next time I have a lot of extra plums, I'll make it again. And maybe even try other fruit. The clafouti is a kind of doughy custard, which may not sound appetizing, but don't let that put you off. This really is good. - 23 Aug 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made this for company and it was very easy and good. I did reduce the lemon peel as suggested. I liked that it wasn't too sweet and had a texture similar to creme caramel, which is a favourite. What made it really good was topping it with a plum sauce my husband made with our remaining fruit. He cooked pitted plums down with a bit of water and then sweetened it to taste. Served warm, it was divine. I actually made it again the next day, to see if it was that good, and it was. I am going to try this recipe using apples, brown sugar and a caramel sauce. Stay tuned. - 15 Sep 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Made this for my family to use up some fresh plums and everyone LOVED it. I followed the recipe to the letter, incl. baking time and it was a perfect dessert--neither too sweet nor too tart. A perfect balance of flavor and texture and served warm with a dollop of whipped cream---HEAVEN. Will try with other fruits also. - 28 Aug 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
