A clafouti is a great summer cake. It has no crumbly, greasy “floor”, but is juicy and moist and fruity and still doesn’t fall apart. Julie, originally from France, to be precise la Bretagne, makes the best clafouti I have ever tried. Of course I had to get the recipe and her permission to pass it on to my dear readers!
