Baked Blueberry and Nectarine Pudding

Some might say “clafoutis”… Others may call it a “flaugnarde”… I like to call it “pudding”, not only because that is one of my favourite words, but because the basis for this dish evolved before I knew what a clafoutis or a flaugnarde was!

You can use almost any fruit, as long as it releases some juice. Berries, plums, rhubarb, etc are all suitable.

Baked Blueberry and Nectarine Pudding

  • 2 nectarines (or peaches)
  • 3/4 cup blueberries
  • 1 tbsp vanilla sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup plain flour, sieved
  • Pinch of salt

Slice nectarines and heat gently in a pan with the blueberries and vanilla sugar until the blueberries start to release their juice. Place in a buttered, oven-proof dish, and preheat oven to 190°C.

Whisk the eggs and sugar together, and add the milk. Then whisk in the flour and salt. (If your fruit is VERY juicy, add 2 tbsps oats). Pour over the fruit and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the top is golden and puffy. Serve warm/at room temperature.

Bon Appetit!

  1. Only we dotted the fruit with a bit of butter before pouring the crust over it…That adds a mellowness to the sweet fruit.

  2. I never would have thought to put them together. Thanks for sharing. I have about a 1000 pairs on my tree she is such a producer 🙂 Hope to find some a way to use them all, lol Picking berries Blackberry and Raspberry this morning before the birds or Bear get them. I have Elderberry too no wonder I get so much wildlife in my back yard lol

    • How wonderful to have nectarines in your own garden! Does a bear really come into your garden? Enjoy all that lovely produce! Any plans for the elderberries?

      • oops no only berries here sorry
        I have berries all around my property line and yes I think they come for bird food but in a pinch I may have to fight him for the berries 🙂
        Not wine but maybe jelly?

  3. It looks really good. I see this combination a lot, but have never tried the two fruits together. Hey, I didn’t know those words either!

  4. This sounds very good. I also prefer the word pudding. I´ve never heard clafoutis or flaugnarde before (oh dear I hope I did remember how to spell the words correctly ;-P)
