Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

4 Firm-ripe pears, peeled
cored and
2 Tablespoon(s) Fresh lemon juice
3/4 Cup(s) Sliced blanched almonds
3/4 Cup(s) Milk
1 Stick Unsalted Butter
melted and cooled
1/2 cup
3 Eggs, beaten lightly
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Vanilla
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Almond extract, preferably
3/4 Cup(s) Self-rising cake flour
1/2 Cup(s) Plus 2 tablespoons sugar
Pure almond extract is available at specialty foods shops. Preheat the
oven to 400F. and butter a 10-by 2-inch round (1-quart capacity)
baking dish. In the dish toss the pears gently with the lemon juice
and spread them evenly in the dish. In a blender grind fine 1/2 cup of
the almonds, add the milk, 6 tablespoons of the butter, the eggs, the
vanilla, and the almond extract, and blend the mixture until it is
smooth. In a bowl whisk together the flour, 1/2 cup of the sugar, and
a pinch of salt and stir in the milk mixture, stirring until the
batter is combined well. Pour the batter over the pears, drizzle it
with the remaining 2 tablespoons butter, and sprinkle it with the
remaining 2 tablespoons sugar and remaining 1/4 cup almonds. Bake the
clafouti in the middle of the oven for 40 minutes, or until it is
golden brown, and let it cool on a rack for 15 minutes. Serve the
clafouti warm. Serves 6 to 8. Gourmet November 1993 Converted by
