“We haven't tried this yet, but I am so looking forward to it. We love clafouti of all types. Prep time is a guess.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine apricots and almond liqueur (or orange juice) in a large bowl.
  2. Grate 2 teaspoons zest from the lemon and set aside. Juice the lemon and stir 2 teaspoons of the juice into the apricots. Let stand for at least 1 hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°F
  4. Coat a 10-inch round baking dish, such as a ceramic quiche dish, or oval casserole with cooking spray. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon sugar evenly over the bottom. Arrange apricots in the baking dish.
  5. Combine eggs, egg white and Splenda in a medium bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until pale yellow. Add milk, flour, almond extract, salt, the reserved lemon zest; beat well to blend.
  6. Pour the batter over the apricots; sprinkle with almonds.
  7. Bake the clafouti until puffed and golden, 45 to 55 minutes.
  8. Let cool for about 20 minutes. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar and serve warm.
