Pear Clafouti

Nothing is better than ending a satisfying dinner than with a light and flavorful dessert. Today, we baked a pear clafouti. A clafouti is a baked french dessert with black cherries. However, the Barefoot in Paris recipe which we followed replaced those cherries with slices of pear. The fruit is then covered with a pancake-like batter and bakes into a somewhat flaky concoction, with a custard center. The dish is dusted with powdered sugar and is typically served lukewarm. Here are some photographs of the steps it took to construct this phenominal pastry:
