Blueberry and Earl Grey clafoutis

Blueberry and Earl Grey clafoutis 1

For me, summer is synonymous with clafoutis (amongst other things). But to be honest, I couldn’t face the idea of pitting 450 g of cherries, especially in this very hot weather. So I went for blueberries instead and, to make it a bit more exciting, I infused the milk and cream with Earl Grey tea. This blueberry and Earl Grey clafoutis is great for a mid-afternoon snack but beware of miniature Godzilla-like creatures, who might try to steal it from you! I also heard that savoury clafoutis are also delicious, you just need to remove the sugar. I might try goat’s cheese and cherry tomatoes next time.
