Apricot and Lemon Flaugnarde

The dish commonly found in the Auvergne, Limousin and Périgord regions of France, almond custard-based claufoutis are traditionally made with cherries. However, other stone fruits, such as apricots, peaches, nectarines and plums can be used. When made with these fruits the dish is correctly known as a flaugnarde. This apricot flaugnarde is scented with lemon and has a beautiful creamy texture.
