This is one of my favourite summer desserts. It can be made with literally any kind of berry. It is delicate, elegant and so easy to make. It is a lovely company dessert.I love it just slightly warm and sprinkled with powdered sugar. It is delicious.
Here is my version:
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
¼ cup butter melted
1 cup flour
2-3 cups washed berries
Preheat the oven to 350. Butter a cast iron 9” pan or use a deep dish pie dish at least 1 ½ inches deep.
In a bowl, beat the eggs about 2 minutes with a whisk. Add the sugar, vanilla and butter and milk. Beat again until everything is light and fluffy. Add the flour in over 3 stages mixing thoroughly between each addition. This is a thin dough like a crepe. It will puff up like a soufflé and fall as it cools. The taste will still be delicious.
Add the berries to the pan and pour the egg mixture over the berries. Bake for approximately 30-35 minutes or until lightly browned and puffy.
Serve room temperature or slightly warmed up with whipped cream and a sprinkle of powdered sugar.
