Clafoutis is one of the most famous French pies.
By tradition, this cake is made with fragrant wild cherry without removing pits from it.
French peasants took such a cake with them as a dinner during haymaking.
The name comes from the word clafir, which means “fill in.”
The cake is also interesting because it contains almost no flour, and the basis is eggs and cream.
In addition, if any other fruit appears in this dessert instead of a cherry, then according to the rules it should be called flognarde (flonyard).
Probably, this pie with broccoli and Brussels sprouts should be called that in a salty version. but we like klafuti more.
