So easy — simply dump the blueberries in the pan, cover in vanilla custard or flan batter then bake! This French berry dessert – Blueberry Clafoutis is the perfect vehicle for your favorite summer fruit!
Last Saturday the ladies at our church met up to celebrate the birthday of one of our friends. It was a big milestone in her life and we all wanted it to be special. Our hostess organized not just an ordinary party but one which involved cooking demonstration – the food prepared during the demo was what we actually ate.
I was assigned to make dessert and guess what I made? My favorite French dessert – Clafoutis.
I made my Strawberry Pecan Clafoutis for the actual demo but prior to that, I made this blueberry version as I haven’t done one with blueberries yet and wanted to try how it would work.
I am glad both turned out well. I can’t even choose which one I prefer as they are both yummy!
I guess, that’s the main reason I love this dessert – you can use your favorite fruits or whatever may be in season and it’s sure to be delicious! After all you can’t go wrong with custard and fruit combo, right? The classic French version of course would be dark cherries and I cannot forget the delicious cherry clafoutis we had in Paris a few years ago.
It was baked completely with stems and pits! Yes, it took a bit of effort to spit the cherry pits but the taste was fabulous. I guess that’s why they don’t remove the pits – as these add a lot of flavors. I know as I have tried both pitted and unpitted cherries in a clafoutis.
At any rate, if you don’t fancy that, then certainly make the clafoutis with blueberries as you surely won’t be disappointed!

Yummy Blueberry Clafoutis
So easy - simply dump the blueberries in the pan, cover in vanilla custard or flan batter then bake! This French berry dessert - Blueberry Clafoutis is the perfect vehicle for your favorite summer fruit!
- 2½-3 cups blueberries
- ¾ cup all-purpose Flour
- 1 cup sugar
- ¼ tsp salt
- 4 large eggs
- 1½ cups half and half or whole milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Generously butter a 9x 9 square baking dish or 10-inch pie plate. Use a lovely pie or baking dish as this will serve as your serving plate, too. Place the blueberries at the bottom of the dish.
Combine the flour, sugar, and salt in a bowl. Lightly beat the eggs in a separate bowl. Add the milk and vanilla extract to the beaten eggs and whisk to blend. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture at once and quickly stir to avoid lumps.
Pour the custard batter over the blueberries. Bake for about 45-50 minutes or until the batter has puffed up and the middle part springs back when lightly pressed. Oven heating and temperatures vary so adjust timing accordingly. Mine is firm and perfect at 45 minutes. I suggest serving it warm with a dollop of whipped cream or even some vanilla ice cream! Enjoy!
I love your recipe, ihave to look substitute for the egg!
Use flaxseed and water to substitute egg
OH my…this looks delicious. I absolutely LOVE blueberries. It looks like a wonderful custard type cake….with so much blueberry goodness.
the juiciness from blueberry would have given nice flavour to the clafoutis. custard with whole milk would have added lot of richness to the dish
I've never made or tasted this French dessert. I'm sure any fruit would make it amazing. I like the combination of a pudding center and the fruit on top. Fruit desserts have always bee my favorite. I'll have to make this for my family.
This looks amazing and I love that you can customize with fruit you may have on hand. The recipe sounds really easy as well!
Wow, I love how easy this dessert is to make! The blueberries look amazing.
I love that about desserts too that you can customize with whatever fruit you like!
I love Clafoutis I actually make it with cherries but now I am inspired to make it like yours looks so good!
This has got to be one of my favorite desserts when I want something simple. Your recipe sounds delicious
This is such a lovely dessert. We can use any berries that is in season, though blueberries might be my first choice. The colors are just so beautiful!
Looks amazing !!I've been making this recipe off and on for a number of years. I have over the years used all kinds of fruits and mixtures, depending on what I have on hand. Lemon or orange zest kicks it up a notch as well.
Can you use frozen blueberries if you let them thaw?
Yes, no need to thaw so they don’t get mushy. I will use it as is.
Can this be made with 2% milk ?
Yes. That should be fine.
I've always been afraid of making clafoutis just because it sounds too exotic and complicated. Boy, was I ever wrong! I can't wait to try this! Have you made it with other berries as well?
Yes! I have made clafoutis with both strawberries and cherries! It's so easy so I highly recommend making it especially with all the summer berries that would be available soon! Thanks!
I've never attempted to make clafoutis, that's definitely going to change! Looks amazing!
I have tried cheery clafoutis but not tried with any blueberries or strawberries. Your recipe sound easy together as blueberry lover this perfect summer dessert.
Custard and fresh fruits are THE best. This blueberry clafoutis looks absolutely amazing. Blueberries are in season now, and I can't wait to try this. I think my kiddo will love it!
I've never made this before, or I think even tasted it! But this looks so dense and fruity and delicious. Great job!
I can't wait for the summer berries to get here so I can try this. Looks amazing!
This looks so gorgeous and it would make a fabulous weekend brunch menu. I just love spring for all the fresh berries we are getting 🙂
I have a bumper crop of blueberries this year so will be trying this tomorrow. I also want to try with peaches…is there anything I have to adapt in the recipe to use other fruits?
None. Just follow the exact recipe and use your favorite fruit.Thanks!
Can you use frozen blueberries?
Yes and no need to defrost. Let us know how it goes. Thanks!
Can you substitute whole milk for almond milk?
Napakasarap!! Tried and tested! I used frozen saskatoon berries na nahukay ko sa deep freeze and evaporated milk because that’s what I have on hand, dont want to go out because of this pandemic. I cant get enough of it. I shared your link to a community cooking group More power to you!
So glad you found this recipe and tried it. Thank you for the kind feedback, Phoebe! You made my day!
Hi, I love blueberries, but could I use raspberries instead?
Yes, you can use any fruit you like! Strawberries and cherries are amazing for this, too!
This is amazing and so easy to make. I cut back on the sugar and used no sugar homemade whipped cream and still delicious! Baking it again tonight.
So glad to know you enjoyed this! Yay! Thanks for letting us know.
I am laughing, I make the cherry clafoutis with the pits all the time and my kids love it (they can spit the pits at each other) – lol. We will be trying this blueberry one for sure.
This yummy blueberry clafoutis dessert was fabulous! It was quick and easy to assemble and bake. The flavors whispered of beautiful summer days waiting to be enjoyed.
Such an awesome clafoutis! Such a great way to use seasonal blueberries.
Made this clafoutis with some frozen blueberries we had from our summer berry picking haul and it turned out delicious!
This was my first time making clafoutis and it was so good. I can’t wait to make it again.
You don’t specify the amount of half and half or milk, you just say 1 1/2 do you mean cups?
Yes, that’s cups Yvone. Thanks for asking and hope you enjoy this!
It’s not meant to be hard but that shouldn’t go mushy either (as you could see in the photos – it holds its shape). It probably means it hasn’t been baked long enough. Since oven temps and heating vary, a little tweaking on the length of time should do it. I never had any problems with the length of time in this recipe and others never had this issue – so I think it’s just the length of time – perhaps just cook it a bit more until it’s firmer. Also, allow it to chill slightly and not serve right away. While it may be served warm, if desired – if you wish it to be firmer – then make sure to chill it first and allow the custard to set up more. Hope that helps and thank you for stopping by.
Could you use fresh peaches?
Yes, certainly. That should work too and strawberries and cherries work great, too!
