Pear Clafoutis

My opinion on the humble pear is this:

 a raw pear when eaten at the opportune moment is a glorious thing! However that glorious moment occurs for about one hour in each pear's entire existence!
So what do we do? We cook them, because they are always delicious when cooked!

I made this pear clafoutis a few weeks ago when I had some friends over for dinner, the cold evening definitely called for a warm pudding and I had a bag of pears that didn't seem to want me to experience their raw glory!

I just made a simple vanilla cake batter, but added some orange zest and ground almonds.




There is a slight nip in the air today and I would not say no to a nice warm slice of this!
