Maple Roasted Pear Clafoutis

Sounds posh, tastes amazing and an easy to make comforting fruity custard tart!

One of my lovely Saturday morning market customers shared this recipe and my word what a treat!

This recipe is super easy, our dried pears make it or the more convenient and rich in flavour. Easy and delicious and oh so fancy! I love the way clafoutis rolls off the tongue!

* 8 x Fill Good Aussie Dried pears
* 2 tablespoons maple syrup
* 20g butter
* 1/2 cup (75g) plain flour
* 1/2 cup (100g) caster sugar
* 2 eggs, lightly whisked
* 2 egg yolks
* 40g butter, melted
* 2 cups (500ml) milk
* 2 tablespoons Grand Marnier liqueur/ Averna (optional)
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Step 1
Preheat oven to 180°C. Place the pears in an oven-proof dish. Drizzle with maple syrup and dot with butter. Bake in the oven, turning occasionally, The pears will caramelise and will be hard to resist at this stage. But hold off. It will get even better! Remove from the oven and set aside for 15 minutes to cool.

Step 2
Meanwhile, combine the flour and sugar in a medium bowl. Add the eggs and egg yolks and stir to combine. Add the melted butter, milk, liqueur and vanilla and gently whisk to combine. Pour over the pears. Bake in oven for 30-40 minutes or until just set. Remove from oven and set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly before serving. It will be hard, but hang in there you are about to taste heaven.

Serve hot and enjoy as a slice cold. YUM!
