Most traditional clafoutis are made with whole cherries, but you can use other fruit, such as the blackberries here or sliced apricots, plums or figs. Using half-and-half instead of whole milk makes this flan-like dessert extra rich. Instead of a whole vanilla bean, you can swap in 1 teaspoon of good vanilla extract.

3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly, plus more for
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/4 cups half-and-half
3 large eggs
1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise and seeds scraped
1 teaspoon raspberry liqueur, such as Chambord
3 cups blackberries
Confectioners’ sugar, for dusting
How to Make It
Preheat the oven to 400°. Lightly brush a 9-inch square baking dish with butter. In a medium bowl, whisk the flour with the sugar and salt. In a blender, combine the half-and-half with the eggs, melted butter, vanilla bean seeds and liqueur. Pulse to combine. Add the dry ingredients and pulse until smooth.
Arrange the blackberries in a single layer in the baking dish. Pour the batter over the berries. Bake for about 25 minutes, until the clafoutis is set and golden. Transfer the dish to a wire rack and let cool for at least 15 minutes. Just before serving, dust the clafoutis with confectioners’ sugar and serve warm or at room temperature.
The baked clafoutis can be covered with plastic and refrigerated overnight. Return to room temperature before serving.
