Flaugnarde of Mixed Berries (Clafoutis)

I typically gravitate to warm fruit desserts, berry custards, or bread puddings, so naturally, a Flaugnarde of Mixed Berries has my name all over it. A flaugnarde is a rustic French custard-like dessert that is made with eggs, milk, and fruit and then dusted with powdered sugar and eaten warm. Because this recipe is more of a custard, using whole eggs is a must. So, to lighten it, I replaced the cream with low-fat milk and was really please with the results. More recipes with berries you may enjoy: Mini Mixed Berry PieBlueberry Compote, and Mixed Berry Cobbler.
