Pear & Hazelnut Clafoutis

Pear and hazelnut go together beautifully. Make sure to serve this dish warm – a deflated, room-temperature clafoutis doesn’t make a great centrepiece.


Serves: 8
Prep: 10 Minutes
Cook: 35 Minutes



45g blanched hazelnuts, toasted 
30g plain flour 
4 medium eggs, plus 2 egg yolks
150 caster sugar
200ml milk
300ml double cream
2 tsp vanilla extract
2-3 perfectly ripe pears

For the topping
25g blanched hazelnuts 
icing sugar, to serve


1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Put the hazelnuts in a food processor and whizz until finely ground. Add the flour, eggs, extra yolks, sugar, milk, cream and vanilla and whizz until you have a smooth batter.

2. Halve, core and slice the pears (you can peel them first if you like, but I usually don’t). Arrange the pear slices in a 26 x 33cm ceramic, cast iron or copper gratin dish, then pour in the batter. Bake for 30-35 mins, or until the batter is set in the centre, golden and slightly souffléd. 

3. For the topping, toast the hazelnuts in a dry frying pan (keep a close eye on them – they can go from toasted to burnt very quickly), then roughly chop them so you’re left with a mixture of halved and more finely chopped nuts. Scatter over the clafoutis, then sieve a little icing sugar over the top. Leave to sit for 10-15 mins (the clafoutis will deflate a little). Serve warm with crème fraîche or pouring cream.
