Easter egg Clafoutis

Sometimes its fun to serve an Easter dessert that isn’t totally choc-tastic but still has a nod to this beloved holiday. 

Say hello to my Easter egg clafoutis – a simple baked pudding studded with as many mini chocolate Easter eggs as you care to add.

This easy baking recipe uses just six – or seven, including the Easter eggs – common kitchen ingredients so it is perfect to pull together if you have a last minute Easter weekend event.

This is best served close to serving so I wouldn’t recommend making it more than a few hours ahead of serving.

It is fabulous warm straight from the oven but still delicious at room temperature.

Feel free to dust with icing sugar or serve with a dollop of thickened cream – or simply add a few extra chocolate eggs on the side.

GATHER:

3 eggs

1 cup full fat milk

1/3 cup caster sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

30 grams butter, melted

1/2 cup plain flour

As many mini solid chocolate Easter eggs as you want – I didn’t go to crazy but I won’t judge if you do it.

LET’S GET TO IT:

Preheat the oven to 180C and spray a ceramic or glass pie dish with non-stick baking spray.

Whisk milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla, and butter in a large bowl until sugar is dissolved and mixture is frothy – I used a handheld whisk for this.

Sift over the flour and whisk until smooth.

Pour the pie dish and drop in a handful of small solid Easter eggs.

Bake for 40 minutes or until golden and puffy.

    What a great dessert! I bet kids’ eyes light up when this is brought to the table — once they’ve been assured that none of their Easter eggs were harmed in the making of the clafoutis. 🙂

      hehehe! They are usually quite blase about baked goods as I bake most days. To be honest the only thing that gets them excited is brownies.
