Clafouti, with its origins in France, really is the best summer dessert. With just a bowl and a whisk, you can pop one in the oven just as you sit down to dinner, and 30 minutes later have dessert ready! Traditionally, clafouti is made with cherries but you can swap them out for fresh seasonal berries, such as the raspberries used in this recipe. Serve warm dusted with icing sugar, with a bit of whipping cream, or even with a scoop of ice cream for an easy and wonderful summer dessert.
