Cherry tomato clafoutis (kla-FOO-tee) – with or without a Thermomix

5 minutes of your time is all this recipe will take.

A clafouti (pronounced kla-FOO-tee) is traditionally a rustic French dessert. It consists of fruits baked in a custard-like batter similar to pancake batter. It’s simply delicious and I will add a traditional clafouti recipe on here soon.

In the meantime, here’s a savoury version which a welcome change to quiches and tarts we very often eat. Served with a simple green salad, it makes a great meal for family or friends. Very easy and very elegant.

Delicious. Bon appetit x


Made with a hint of large family madness, a pinch of dinner parties and a scoop of easy and quick recipes, this blog is a well-round concoction (!!) of tried and tested food we love.

The gang is made off a mum, a dad, 4 girls (aged 17, 15, 6 & 6) and 1 dog. That’s a lot of people to please when it comes to dinner time.

The 2 main characters in the story are: Maud (the human mum) & Momo (the Thermomix), we were both born in France, both have a passion for cooking, simple, tasty food – cooking & baking makes us happy!

Coming soon:
How to get this week's dinners ready in under an hour.
Cook once, eat 5 family dinners.

That's 5 dinners, 50 minutes preparation max, that will then require less than 5 minutes of your time and 20 minutes unsupervised cooking max from start to table, every night.

>>> So much better for the mental load
>>> No food waste so better for the wallet and the planet
>>> Healthy, prepared from scratch dinners

We hope you leave this site with either the inspiration to try out a new recipe, a new skill or an idea for your next cooking adventure.
