Mumu Date and Pistachio Clafoutis

Date and Pistachio Clafoutis, Mumu Grill

Serves 4

I love Clafoutis  (pronounced claf-oo-tee) The almond meal adds a wonderful texture to this baked custard. This Mumu version has a real Middle Eastern twist, but, if you prefer,  just use your favourite fruit!


2 eggs, lightly beaten

150 ml cream

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

¼ cup almond meal

¼ cup caster sugar

Pinch salt

2 strawberries hulled,  and halved

Enough dates to cover base of dish

Handful of shelled pistachios

Icing sugar, to garnish

Ice cream or cream, to serve


How to

1. Preheat oven to 180C.
2. Place the eggs, cream and vanilla in a food processor and process until well combined. If you don’t have a food     processor, don’t worry, you can easily do it the old fashioned way, with a balloon whisk.

5. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the clafoutis is golden and set. A skewer inserted in the centre should come out clean.
6. To serve, dust with icing sugar, garnish with strawberries and serve with cream or ice cream.
