Recipe | Tamarillo clafoutis

Recipe and words extracted from More From a Quiet Kitchen by Nici Wickes

This recipe comes from one of my sisters who then shared it with my darling niece. What this means is that at family gatherings one of them will whip up a clafoutis on the spot which we all happily devour. I’ve scaled the original back to make this darling little serve, just right for one. 

Tamarillo Clafoutis by Nici Wickes

Serves 1 (with a little left over for breakfast)


soft butter for dish + extra for dotting 

2 tamarillos 

1 medium egg 

2 tablespoons sugar + extra for sprinkling 

1 heaped tablespoon plain flour 

1 teaspoon vanilla extract 

¼ cup milk 

a drizzle of cream


Preheat the oven to 180°C and generously butter a small ovenproof dish

Halve and scoop out flesh of fruit and cut into thick slices. Place in buttered dish. 

Whisk egg with the 2 tablespoons sugar, add flour and whisk until smooth. Whisk in vanilla and milk. 

Pour batter over fruit, dot some butter over the top and bake for 20 minutes or so until just set in the centre and golden. 

Serve with a final sprinkle of sugar over the top and drizzle with cream.

Note: Use fresh pitted cherries, prunes, feijoas or any not-too-juicy fruit for this recipe.
