Mango Clafoutis

This recipe come by way of my dad’s first secretary, Claire Matthews. She lived down the street and would often bring our family gifts of mangos from her tree during the summertime. Make this when you have the sweetest, most ripe mangos which drip with juice when sliced open. This dessert is truly heavenly… one of the best things in the world you can do with mangos. A small scoop of vanilla ice cream is a nice addition, as it melts all over the warm clafoutis, but is not required.

Ingredients
 

  • 4 cups ripe mango, cubed
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup (90 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • teaspoon kosher salt
  • teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 ¼ cups granulated sugar, divided use
  • ¾ cup whole milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup sliced almonds

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 350 F.
  • Brown the butter by melting it in a small saucepan over medium high heat. Stir occasionally, and let it cook until the milk solids turn brown and it starts to smell nutty. Immediately remove the pan from the heat (as it can burn quickly), and pour into a 10 inch round baking dish, or a 9” square baking dish. Set aside.
  • Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and 1 cup sugar in a bowl and whisk to combine. Pour in the milk, eggs, and vanilla and whisk until a thick batter forms. Pour this over the brown butter in the baking dish.
  • Top the batter evenly with the mango and sprinkle with the remaining sugar. Place in your preheated oven. After 20 minutes of baking, remove from the oven and scatter the sliced almonds over top. Continute to bake for another 20-25 minutes until browned. Remove and let coolon a rack for 10 minutes, then serve warm. Vanilla ice cream is a nice accompaniment, but not necessary.

Notes

*You can make this a few hours ahead of time and reheat in a low oven before serving.
