Recipe: Apricot and Peach Clafoutis

I love baking. But baking generally means cakes, pies and bread, which aren’t all that good for you. I live with 5 other people and work in a busy office, so if I do make something for fun I can always shift it, but half of the fun is in the eating, let’s be honest. 

I found this recipe in the Evening Standard magazine last week, it’s by Rachel Khoo and is nice and summery. I like to think it’s more healthy than my signature Mars Bar Cheesecake because it has fruit in it, but the sugar probably doesn’t help!

4 eggs
150g sugar
Pinch of salt
50g ground almonds
2tbsp plain flour
100g creme fraiche
100ml milk
2 apricots, destoned and chopped
1 peach, destoned and chopped


  • Preheat oven to 180C/Gas Mark 4, and butter and flour a 19/10cm baking dish or tin.
  • Whisk the eggs with the sugar and salt until pale yellow and thick.
  • Sift and fold in the ground almonds and flour.
  • Stir in the creme fraiche and milk.
  • Scatter the fruit into the prepared dish, spreading it out evenly.
  • Pour the batter over the fruit and bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown and set.
  • Serve warm or cold.
