GET BAKED: Chris’ Banana Chocolate Chip Clafoutis

Well, well, what a switch. This time, I was not the one behind the kitchen counter with the eggs, flour, sugar and mixing bowls. Chris was! He baked us a beautiful, delicious banana chocolate chip clafoutis (pronounced klah-foo-tee) after being inspired by an Alton Brown “Good Eats” episode. Chris modified the recipe to suit our liking but used the following: chocolate chips (my request, of course), sliced banana, heavy cream, eggs, sugar, flour, and butter (to butter the sides and bottom of the baking dish so it prevents any sticking.)

Here is my beau in action

Getting baked…

The texture came out very soft and sponge-like with a crisp crust.

My slice. Don’t worry, I had like two more after this LOL.

And here is the recipe per a viewer’s request:

1.5 sliced banana

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup flour

2 eggs

1/2 cup

1/4 cup heavy whipping cream

pinch of nutmeg, paprika and ground cumin (I know! Crazy, huh?)

a sprinkle of semi-sweet chocolate chips

Just beat the eggs, mix in the sugar (you can do this with a whisk or beater), add the flour and the cream and the spices. Line a buttered baking dish with the sliced bananas, pour the mixture on top and sprinkle the chocolate chips on top of that. Bake it for 30 to 45 minutes or until the center is set (check with a fork or toothpick) at 375 degrees. Enjoy!
