Banana Clafouti

Makes 6 servings

Cooking Time: 35 min

The name “clafouti” sounds like a fancy dessert, yet it’s as easy to make as pancake batter. Traditionally it’s made with apples, cherries or apricots when in season. This version with bananas makes it a dessert fit for any time of year.


1/2 cup all-purpose flour 125 ml
1/4 cup granulated sugar 50 ml
1 tsp vanilla extract 5 ml
2 cups milk 500 ml
2 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice 10 ml


Step 1
Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Lightly grease or spray with a non-stick spray a 9-inch (23 cm) deep-dish glass pie plate or a 8-inch (20 cm) glass baking dish.

Step 2
In a bowl, combine flour and sugar; whisk in eggs and vanilla until blended. Gradually whisk in milk until frothy. Set aside.

Step 3
Cut bananas into thin slices and place in a bowl with lemon juice. Toss gently to coat in juice. Arrange banana slices in the bottom of prepared baking dish, overlapping slightly. Gently pour milk mixture over top of bananas.

Step 4
Bake in preheated oven for about 35 minutes or until top is golden brown and centre is puffed. Let cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Serve warm or let cool completely.
