This baked custardy puff studded with fresh fruit belongs to the same species as popovers, Yorkshire pudding, and souffled pancakes. It is a very easy breakfast dish that you can whip up in a blender in minutes. Then you can relax and possibly even read the newspaper while it bakes.
350 g fresh fruit (any combination), such as dark cherries
sliced ripe plums, peaches
any kind of berries
300 ml milk (may be low fat)
Recipe preparation steps
Preheat oven to 375ºF.Place the butter in a 9x13-inch pan, and put it in the oven for several minutes, until all the butter is melted. Remove from oven and tilt the pan to evenly distribute the butter.
Use a blender or food processor fitted with the steel blade. Add milk first, then all remaining ingredients, except fruit and 1 tablespoon of flour. Blend or process until frothy and well combined.
In a small separate bowl, toss together the fruit and the extra tablespoon of flour. Pour the batter into the prepared pan, spoon in the coated fruit, and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until dramatically puffed and lightly browned.
Cut into large squares and serve immediately. This also tastes good left over, at room temperature (although it is rare to have any left over!)
