Plum clafoutis

Plum clafoutis

By James Martin

Don’t have time for an intricate homemade tart or multi-layered cake? Fast desserts don’t necessarily compromise on flavour and wow-factor: flash-cooked crêpes suzettes are impressive and delicious, while simple syllabubs and macerated summer fruits make the most out of a few ingredients. Throw-together parfaits and fruit fools also need no time in order to create a fancy look.
