Hubby brought home some fresh berries from Washington last month and I just cannot imagine what to do with them. It will be such a waste to make fruit jam out of them since they are so expensive after our exchange rates. However expensive though, they are still slightly cheaper than those sold in our Supermarts.
I love eating home-made stuffs especially when I don't have to make them myself, but I guess this is only wishful thinking. If I eat this for breakfast in a cafe, I wonder how much it will cost me. As you can see later in the recipe, the cost for making this breakfast is pretty much very affordable.
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.
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.
