Traditionally made with cherries, clafoutis is a soft-baked French dessert that sets fruit in a light batter. To give the dish a seasonal spin, we have used blackberries. Their sweet tang makes them a perfect pairing for the soft, sweet batter.

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C and grease a 1.25ltr baking dish. Toss the berries with 1 tbsp caster sugar and the lime zest. Arrange in the dish in a single layer.
  2. In a bowl, whisk the eggs and remaining sugar until thickened and creamy. Sift over the flour, then beat into the egg mixture. Whisk in the cream, milk, butter and vanilla.
  3. Pour the mixture over the fruit and bake for 35-40 mins, until just set and golden.
  4. Meanwhile, make the sauce. Whizz the blackberries and icing sugar in a food processor. Pass through a sieve to remove the seeds, then add the lemon juice to taste.
  5. Dust the clafoutis with icing sugar and serve warm, accompanied by the blackberry sauce.
