Pumpkin Claflouti

This pumpkin’s days are numbered.

I’m having so much fun contemplating all the potential ways he might meet his demise. Pumpkin bread? Pumpkin soufflé? Pumpkin bread pudding? Or maybe I’ll do something I’ve never done before and make a traditional pumpkin pie.

I can’t bring myself to kill him just yet, or go through the process of seeding, roasting and pureeing him, so I will resort to the canned equivalent. Today I will attempt to make a Pumpkin Claflouti. What’s a clafouti? Well from my understanding, it’s a French, custardy, pancake like dessert usually made with fruit. But the only dessert cookbook I own (The Last Course by Claudia Fleming), has a clafouti recipe which substitutes pumpkin for fruit. Pancake + Pumpkin = Where could I go wrong? Wish me luck!
