How to Perfectly Toast Buns on the Grill


  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 6 medium peaches—peeled, pitted and quartered

How to make this recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. In a blender, combine the eggs with the cream, milk and flour. Add 1/2 cup of the sugar; blend until smooth.

  2. In a large heavy skillet, melt the butter over moderate heat. Add the peaches, sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 4 minutes.

  3. Butter a 10-inch round glass pie plate and pour in one-quarter of the batter. Spoon the peaches with their liquid into the dish and pour the remaining batter on top. Set the pie plate on a baking sheet and bake for about 1 hour, or until golden and just set. Transfer to a rack and let cool to room temperature before serving.

Make Ahead

The clafoutis can be refrigerated overnight. Gently rewarm in a 300° oven before serving.
