Rhubarb and Red Fruit Clafoutis

rhubarb and red fruit French clafoutis

French iconic cherry clafoutis can also be baked with other fruits. Here rhubard and red fruit (strawberry or raspberry)

I’m a big fan of rhubarb. Arn’t you? A sour and bitter taste. that goes well to balance desserts sweetness. You’ll find other recipes with rhubbarb on this French food blog : rhubarb tart or rhubarb muffins (both associated with berries), and a gorgours strawberry and rhubarb tart on French sablé Breton bhortbread (typical pastry from Britany).

The trick of this recipe to get a very tender rhubarb is to macerate it in sugar for about 1 hour and then drain it before combining with the red fruits in the clafoutis batter. As we are already having sugar here with the fruits, I used my classic clafoutis recipe (see the cherry clafoutis) and reduced the amount of sugar.

This recipe can be made with any type of red fruit: raspberry, strawberry, or mix of red fruits. If you use  frozen fruit, make sure to drain them well.
