Ask me what a clafoutis is 5 months ago, I would have answered you "Uh?" until I was eagerly looking forward to recipes by pastry chef Anna Olson on 'Sugar' during my last trimester, only then I knew what this lovely dessert was all about. The truth is when I was 15kg heavier then my normal self and craving for sugar high, any desserts that need minimum handling will rank highest on my list! CLAFOUTIS is one of them.
This year 2007 is ear-marked as the most memorable Christmas dinner I have ever had. Truly not because this is the best roast I have ever made but this was my last wonderful meal I had before I gave birth to my son.
I happened to have accidentally combine 2 very lovely ingredients together the other day while whipping up a batch of delicious chocolate brownies for the kids during the school holidays. What I came up with was a mixture of chocolate brownies with a marbling of cream cheese on the top. It came out marvelous and I have made it twice since. For those of you planning for a Christmas dinner dessert, I highly recommend this. It is an easy dessert option that will hardly fail to impress your guests.
