Blackberry Clafoutis with Toasted Almonds

This morning I woke up earlier than the Hubby and knew I wanted to make something for breakfast. Once the coffee had time to kick in, I decided on clafouti. I’ve made savoury clafoutis before, which in essence is a glorified frittata, which truth be told I’m not a fan of. But I had it in my mind that a sweet clafoutis would be more like a biscuit than an omelet. So used up the last of the summer blackberries I had in the freezer and threw together some blackberry clafoutis with toasted almonds.

I think I’ll stick with the sweet version of clafoutis from now on. It tastes a bit like waffles or even somewhat tart-like. I’m thinking some little dollops of creamcheese next time would kick it up a notch!
