Fig & Honey Clafoutis

"Fig & Honey Clafoutis" How dreamy does THAT sound?! Clafoutis (pronounced "klah-foo-TEE") is a traditional French fruit pudding that sounds super fancy, but is SO EASY to make. I saw a high fat (heavy cream) recipe that got me obsessing, especially after getting such amazing honey at Savannah Bee Company! I researched lighter clafoutis recipes and developed my own slimmed-down version for this one:

•fresh figs, halved (Mine were small, so I used 12.)
•3 eggs
•1/3 cup honey
•1 cup low-fat milk (I used skim.)
•1 tsp vanilla extract
•Pinch of salt
•2/3 cup white whole wheat flour

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 10-inch pie plate with cooking spray. Arrange the halved figs, face up, in the bottom of the pie plate. Set aside to make the custard.

Combine the rest of the ingredients, except flour, in the blender and whizz for about 15 seconds. Add flour and blend another 15 seconds or so, until the mixture is completely smooth.

Slowly and gently pour the custard over the figs.

Bake for ~45 minutes, or until top is lightly browned and custard is set.

Serve warm or at room temperature.

Not a fig fan? This recipe is so versatile: plums, cherries, be creative! But, me - I love figs. They make me think of my Grandmommy. She has had a fig tree beside her house for longer than I've been alive. It's right on the side of the house where you park & get out or where you hug & wave good-bye, so figs just invoke "Grandmommy greetings" for me. I always think, too, of the constant battle she waged against the birds to preserve our harvest by wrapping the whole thing in netting, just as the figs showed the very first signs of ripening. :-) Food is best when it invokes happy memories!

  2. I ate the whole thing by myself in less than 24 hours... :-P
