I really love this dessert. It is nice and easy and you can use any seasonal fruit or raisins soaked in armagnac for t least 2 hours, which is a great wintery dessert. If you want to make this even more decadent, you can serve some vanilla ice-cream with it. This will melt on top of the hot clafoutis and turn into a delicious mess…
