If you can whip up pancake batter, this is the perfect dessert for you. This effortless confection takes only minutes to mix together and less than an hour to bake. It’s a great dessert to pop into the oven just before you eat dinner as there’s nothing like that warm, cozy bite.

A French Classic

Elegant Blackberry Flaugnarde not only comes together easily, it also only takes a handful of ingredients. With the exception of the blackberries they’re ingredients you probably always have on hand.

While many people have either had or heard of a clafoutis, flaugnarde is a similar French dessert. Where clafoutis is traditionally made with cherries, flaugnarde can be a multitude of different fresh fruit fillings.

For this recipe I am using one of my favorite seasonal fruits, blackberries. I love their balance of sweet and tart flavor and the juicy burst of fruit that melds with the batter. You can substitute the blackberries with your favorite berry, or combination.

The batter for this dessert reminds me of almost a crepe like batter. It’s thin and silky, baking up into a light and puffy treat that hugs each berry and transforms into almost one large pancake.

This is a perfect treat to end a Sunday dinner on as it’s rustic, warm, and comforting. It’s also a gorgeous accompaniment to afternoon tea, and special enough to entertain with or add to your holiday table. You will love how quickly it comes together and your friends and family will adore it from first bite to last crumb.

  1. What are the 4 tablespoons of butter for as it doesn’t mention butter in the recipe except for buttering the pan?

    1. I am sorry! You add the melted butter into the batter in the end! The video will show exactly! Let me know if you try the recipe!

  2. 4 stars
    I’m giving the recipe 4 stars because, while it tasted great, some key information was missing in the recipe card at the bottom of the page. I jumped immediately to the recipe like I do with all blog pages that let me “jump to recipe” and while reading through the recipe card could not find a oven temp, when to put in the 4 tbsp of butter (besides a ludicrous assumption that I might need 4 tbsp to butter and flour the pan), how big the pan is supposed to be, and whether or not I’m supposed to cool the flaugnarde completely or enjoy it warm (two conflicting instructions). I had to scroll up to the wordy but of the blog in order to find all this information. If you have a “jump to recipe” button at the top of the page, please have all relevant information contained in the recipe card at the bottom of the page.
