Chocolate and pear clafoutis

Last weekend I was stuck at home with a fever, antibiotics and the whooping cough... Yep, I managed to catch the whooping cough. I'm completely run down and I have little energy for anything. Last week I completely lost taste and smell, it is a very odd and unpleasant experience. So when it came back to normal on the weekend, I was very excited and decided to bake with the little book and baking tins I got for Christmas. And nothing is better than a pear and chocolate combo. So here we go for a very easy clafoutis recipe.

Ingredients for 6 individual cakes:
  • 3 pears
  • 150g dark chocolate
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 yolks
  • 50g cornflour
  • 125g sugar
  • 50g butter
  • 40cl milk

  • Heat the oven on 180º.
  • Melt the chocolate broken into pieces into the milk for 3 minutes on low heat. Stir constantly.
  • In a bowl, whisk the eggs and the extra yolks with the sugar until it turns a bit foamy. Add the cornflour and the chocolate milk, whisking constantly.
  • Peel the pears and cut them in little squares.
  • Butter the 6 individuals tins, pour the mix equally, divide the pear cubes between them. Sprinkle little bits of butter on top.
  • Cook for 20-30 minutes. It needs to stay soft.

  1. You can't beat pear as a fruity accompaniment to chocolate. I tried my own take on a chocolate pear clafoutis at http://17years.whatle.com/?p=67 - I hope to get a photo soon.
