The mornings have been misty and cool here in Santa Barbara, but the Farmer's Market bounty assures us that summer is just a skip away. We found these golden apricots at the market this morning, and I knew a Clafoutis was in our future. It takes 10 minutes to assemble, 40 minutes to bake, and seconds to consume. :)
Apricot Almond Clafoutis
5-7 Ripe Apricots, halved and pitted
3/4 cup Milk of choice (I used Almond Milk)
1/4 cup Flour
1/3 cup Sugar, plus more for the pan
1 tsp Almond Extract
Preheat oven to 375.
Grease an 8" round or oval dish with butter, and sprinkle with sugar.
Place pitted apricots in dish.
Whisk together eggs, flour, sugar, milk, almond extract until smooth. Pour over apricots and bake between 40-45 minutes. It will look deliciously puffed up and golden brown.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve warm.
