foux du fafa

right before christmas i decided to face my great and highly irrational fear of fruits (don't judge). tangerines are ok, but not berries (also in jam) or any other fruit. but, like i said, i decided to man up and make: appleclafoutis. lc made clafoutis with prunes (which i didn't taste at the time. prunes=fruit) and she gave the hard verdict that it tasted like pancakes- in a bad way. so i made mine with some season-appropriate spices. this is a straight-forward recepie, and with things you have at home. so- my version? did i dare? yessir. i did. but some of the applepices were still crisp so i couldn't eat those but it was nice and had some pancake similarity but not overwhelming. also custard. see lc's custard-school.

Apple- clafoutis
oven 175 degrees
serves at least 4

25 g butter or margarine
2 eggs
1 dl caster sugar
1 dl wheatflour
1 dl milk
two-three small apples
about 2 dl blueberries
spices: a pinch of salt, 1 tsp each of cinnamon and cardamom

Butter and bread a pan about 24 cm in diam. Melt the butter, then put aside to cool. Whisk eggs, sugar, flour, milk and spices together in a bowl. Add the butter. Spread the fruit evenly in the pan, pour over the batter, bake for 30-40 minutes until it's golden and has set.
serve luke warm. with custard. nom nom.
(yeah, i know the pics not that great but it i'm but a mediocre photographer)
