Our strawberry clafoutis recipe takes just 10mins to prep and has three easy steps in the method. 

Inspired by a recipe from the famous Parisian patisserie Petit Gâteau, our strawberry clafoutis uses quark. It makes the finished bake light and fluffy and it's fat-free. This recipe uses just strawberries but feel free to experiment with your favourite berries and fruits.

Top tips for making strawberry clafoutis:


  • Cherries are the classic berry cooked into a clafoutis. Swap the strawberries for cherries, or even better try a mix of your favourite summer berries.

  • Use thawed frozen berries when they are no longer in season

  • We've served the clafoutis with half fat creme Fraiche but ice cream, clotted cream or custard all make delicious, indulgent alternatives
