This simple batter is similar to pancake batter. Poured in a pan with fruit, it bakes into a creamy custard.


  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, room temperature, for dish

  • ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • Pinch of salt

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 cup chilled heavy cream

  • ¾ cup whole milk

  • 2 teaspoons finely grated orange zest

  • 1 ½ cups fresh or thawed frozen cranberries, coarsely chopped

  • Confectioners' sugar, for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Butter a 1-quart baking dish (not metal) using a pastry brush; sprinkle 2 tablespoons granulated sugar over bottom. Sift remaining 1/2 cup granulated sugar, the flour, and salt into a large bowl. Gradually whisk in eggs, 3/4 cup cream, the milk, and zest.

  2. Scatter cranberries into dish; pour batter over top. Bake until puffed, slightly set, and brown around edges, 32 to 34 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes (it will sink).

  3. Whisk remaining 1/4 cup cream until soft peaks form. Dust clafouti with confectioners' sugar. Serve with whipped cream.
