Perfect for Valentines Day. A Clafoutis is a French baked dessert from the Limousin region, traditionally using seasonal fruits. It is really easy to make and even easier to eat and enjoy. You can make the batter earlier in the day so it is brilliant for a dinner party or date night as it is so quick to get in the oven
