Here’s a yummy new breakfast to try. It’s called clafoutis (pronounced kla-FOO-tee). In France people eat it for dessert, but it’s also delicious for breakfast. You can make it with your favorite fruit, and it’s good either warm or cold.

4 eggs

2 cups milk or rice milk

1/3 cup flour

1/3 cup sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon almond extract or vanilla extract

1/2 cup fresh or frozen fruit of your choice (cherries, blueberries, raspberries, peaches)

Place eggs, milk, flour, sugar, salt, and extract in a blender. Blend on low speed for about 30 seconds. Pour into a quiche dish or ovenproof glass dish. Put fruit on top. Cook at 350°F (177°C) for 45 minutes or until clafoutis is not very jiggly.
