  • 1-2 tsp butter for greasing your baking dishes
  • 1 teaspoon sugar for dusting the baking dishes
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 vanilla bean seeds or 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup half and half
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 large pear or 2 small ones
  • 1/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries ( do not thaw if frozen)


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F.
  2. Butter 2 large or 3 small baking dishes and dust them with the granulated sugar. Shake out any excess sugar.
  3. Peel and core the pear and slice it to about 1/8th of an inch thick slices and arrange it on the baking dish. Scatter the fresh or frozen blueberries around and on top of the pears.
  4. In the jar of a blender, combine the half and half, brown sugar, flour, vanilla, eggs and salt and blend for a minute until the batter is smooth.
  5. Pour this batter over the pears and don’t worry if they start to float.
  6. Bake for 18-20 minutes until the custard is puffed, slightly golden and set. It should not jiggle.
  7. Cool for a few minutes and enjoy warm or chilled.
  8. Serve dusted with confectioner’s sugar if desired.

Recipe Notes

  • Double or triple this batch of blueberry pear clafoutis for a larger company and bake it in one large dish for convenience, or make a tiny batch and enjoy it right away!
  • Feel free to swap pears for apples or apricots and season the custard with cinnamon, lemon zest or nutmeg.
  • Clafoutis is best eaten the day it's made but the custard can theoretically be stored in the fridge for up to three days.
