Clafoutis with Blueberries

This is my first entry for a german Food Blog event. I am not sure if that kind of event exists in the english speaking Food Blog community as well, but I think it is great. It is arranged by the wonderful blog “1 x umrühren bitte” which means something on the lines of “Please stir once”.

This month’s theme is desserts. Nothing easier than that and finally a reason to make one of the recipes on my long, long list of sweet treats. I could eat cake, muffins and everything else sugary for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Unfortunately, my hips don’t like it and Stefan doesn’t either. So I need a good reason for baking…

And that’s where the Food Blog Event comes in. It was really hard to choose only one recipe. But in the end I went for a Clafoutis with Blueberries. It is based on a recipe from Tim Mälzer – a wonderful chef from Hamburg, Germany.
