I had some very good fresh peaches that I wanted to use in a baked dish. I remembered seeing Ina make an Apple Clafouti, which I've always wanted to try....well my search was on for the perfect Peach Clafouti recipe and I think this is it!! I was looking for one that incorporated almond, and the Amaretto was perfect. We enjoyed this warm with vanilla bean ice cream...very yummy! Thank you for posting.
Excellent dessert. Interesting method but easy - I loved how some peach got pureed into the batter ! I had to use canned fruit as is it just early spring here but still it worked well and tasted just great.
