A dessert for independence: Clafouti !

Just barely in time for your freedom celebrations.
Fun to say, fun to eat, this dessert is so simple to make it will free you up to have more fun tomorrow.
In my original recipe I used peaches, in this newer version I used blueberries and boysenberries.
It definitely looks more patriotic and would be great with any kind of berry.
Make in early in the day and sit back and relax !
