After Cornell professor Brian Wansink’s food psychology post, I’m in the mood forÂ tracking down the foodÂ that suits my mood.Â I’m thinking pears, I’m thinking easy & I’m thinkingÂ delicious, so that’s why we’re whipping up a Pear Clafoutis with this wonderful recipe from the Domestic Goddess.Â Enjoy, I know you will!
- 4 large eggsÂ Â
- Â½ cup granulated sugarÂ Â
- 1/8 teaspoon saltÂ Â
- 1/3 cup all purpose flourÂ Â
- 1 cup whole milkÂ Â
- Â¼ cup butter, meltedÂ Â
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extractÂ Â
- Â½ teaspoon maple extractÂ Â
- Â½ teaspoon ground cinnamonÂ Â
- 3 large pears, peeled, cored, slicedÂ Â
- Powdered sugarÂ Â
- Maple Syrup
Go ahead & preheat your oven to 325 F or 165 C. Generously butter 9-inch-diameter glass or ceramic pie plate.
Beat eggs, sugar and salt in medium bowl to blend. Whisk in flour. Add milk, butter, vanilla and maple extracts and cinnamon – whisk until smooth.
Arrange pears in bottom of prepared plate. Pour custard over pears.
Bake until clafoutis is set in center and golden on top, about 55 minutes.
Sprinkle powdered sugar over and serve with maple syrup on the side.
