Pronounced “kla-fu-ti”, this is a delicious baked French dessert, and another one of those recipes I tested and tasted and had to make over and over again. It’s so simple, really adaptable (you can swap the raspberries for your favourite fresh, frozen or tinned fruit or berries), and surprisingly impressive. Everyone will ask you to make it again – just smile and say yes, and don’t let on how easy it is! I serve it hot out of the oven with a sneaky scoop of vanilla ice-cream or a dollop of thick cream on top – because when it comes to desserts, there’s no such thing as too decadent.
