Sweets for my sweet
Sweets for my sweet, sugar for my honey. The Searchers had a song with that title back in the 60's. I wasn't born in the 60's and as far as I remember my mum didn't care about them, so I have no clue why I would sing this over and over since I was a teen... This sweet clafoutis done in a heart bit called for a proper soundtrack. My kitchen got full with Sweets for my sweet playing out loud!
This recipe will join Bron's Donna Day, if I can still send it on time!
Red & Green Clafoutis
1 Granny Smith apple, sliced
1 cup raspberries and blueberries
75 grs caster sugar
2 cups cream cheese (or heavy cream)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3 Tbsp all-purpose flour, sifted
butter and extra sugar for the plate
icing sugar (optional)
Whisk together eggs, sugar, vanilla extract and cream cheese until fluffy. Mix in sifted flour, one tablespoon at a time, not over mixing.
Pour in 2/3 batter into a plate greased and dusted with sugar. Bake at 160ºC for 5 minutes or until solid. Remove from the oven, arrange sliced apple, raspberries and blueberries on top and cover with the remaining batter. Bake for another 15-20 minutes. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
