I typically gravitate to warm fruit desserts, berry custards, or bread puddings, so naturally, a Flaugnarde of Mixed Berries has my name all over it. A flaugnarde is a rustic French custard-like dessert that is made with eggs, milk, and fruit and then dusted with powdered sugar and eaten warm. Because this recipe is more of a custard, using whole eggs is a must. So, to lighten it, I replaced the cream with low-fat milk and was really please with the results.

This mixed berry flaugnarde is just like a clafoutis. However, a traditional clafoutis calls for black cherries – if any other fruit is used, it’s called a flaugnarde. You can make this dessert with fresh berries, plums, or even peaches.

How to Make a Flaugnarde

A flaugnarde may sound and look impressive, but you won’t believe how simple it is to make.

  1. Put the berries in the prepared baking dish.
  2. Whisk the eggs, agave, salt, and flour together and then add in the milk and vanilla extract.
  3. Pour the custard mixture into the dish, and bake for 45-50 minutes until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  4. Once cool, dust with powdered sugar and serve.

Flaugnarde Variations & Tips:

  • Feel free to use just one type of berry instead of a mix.
  • Sub in frozen berries if fresh aren’t in season.
  • If you’re not a fan of berries, you could use another fruit like peaches, apples, or plums.
  • Swap the berries for cherries to make a clafoutis. 
  • Serve with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt.
  • I used an oval baking dish, but a 7 x 11 or 9 x 9 dish should work. You may need to adjust the baking time.
  • For individual portions, bake the custard in ramekins for easy portion control.
  • Refrigerate leftovers for up to three days.

  • 10 tbsp light agave nectar, or sugar
  • 1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 cup 1% milk

  • powdered sugar for dusting
  • baking spray
  • Preheat the oven to 350F°.

  • Lightly spray a baking dish with baking spray and dust with a little flour. Toss in the berries.

  • Whisk the eggs, agave, salt, and flour together in a large bowl until smooth. Add the milk and vanilla extract. Whisk until smooth then pour into the baking dish.

  • Bake for 45 – 50 minutes or until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

  • When you pull it put of the oven it will wiggle a bit which is completely normal. Cool on a wire rack. The flaugnarde will have puffed up a bit and will deflate while cooling.
