Banana clafoutis met oreo cookies
The first time I heard of the term clafoutis I seriously had no idea what it was. However I saw the one stunning creation after the other pass by on the blogs I follow and so I thought it was time to have a look at it myself. According to wikipedia the dessert comes from france and is originally made with cherries My very first clafoutis was therefore made with cherries. And I liked it so much that the second time followed swiftly. And because you can so easily vary with the dessert I’ve made a couple of other creations in the meantime too.
This time I decided to pair banana and oreo cookies into the clafoutis, but was it a big success? Mwah… it was tasty for sure but it doesn’t have that freshness that I normally associate with a clafoutis and which is linked to the type of fruit you use. The oreo cookies have lost all their crunch in the egg mixture and so I missed both crunch and fresness. So it’s not bad but it needs some work if you’re thinking of making this!
