Tea Time - Clafouti

Today I made a cherry-nectarine clafouti for our tea break. I used the basic recipe from MGCC, but since I had some cherries and nectarines which were ripe and needed using up, I substituted them for the peaches.
I often use recipes from MGCC, and I am looking forward to their book signing on Wednesday, just a few blocks from our house...
My hubby and I had a slice of this dessert a few minutes after the photos were taken, while it was still warm....and yummm...was it tasty! My hubby said it was one of the best desserts he has ever tasted, and he's eaten quite a few over the years!!!
For our beverage, I brewed the Earl Grey tea in a Martha Stewart teapot. Hubby used the new Denby mug he received from his sis for his birthday and I drank mine out of my favorite Denby breakfast cup which came back from Scotland in my carry-on (sadly, it's twin got broken on the trip!)



Plates were purchased a Macy's a while ago.
My dahlias are finally blooming so they are included in the bouquet today.
I am joining Sandi for her weekly tea party  today....you should pay her a visit too!

Your tea table is looking very nice, Millie! I must try that dessert! I find this time of year I get such a hankering for fruit cobblers and the like and yours looks wonderful. Love your blue dishes too. The plates in particular are very pretty! Thank you for sharing this with us at Tea Time and I hope you have a lovely week.

Blessings,
Sandi

Pretty table! I love Denby pottery as it's so sturdy and timeless and comes in such lovely colours. Sorry one got broken in transport :-( That would be very disappointing! Dessert looks delicious! Pamela

So beautiful. My tea breaks normally resemble a paper cup with a bag of tea and if I am lucky a mashed cookie or half a muffin...I like your tea breaks much better!!
So beautiful, and that dessert looks heavenly. Thanks for stopping by today..this was a nice little treat!

Your flower arrangement is gorgeous! Your tablescape is very pretty, too. What lovely dishes! Your husband's mug is so beautiful.
Have a good week! I had not heard the the MGCC girls were in town, I will have to see if I can get over there to see them, too.

What a beautiful table. And THANK YOU for the link to the clafouti recipe. I used to make it years ago, but lost the recipe. I will have to try it once again :-)
