Chocolate clafoutis

A clafoutis "is a custard-like baked French dessert that is typically made by baking fresh fruit (traditionally cherries) and a batter, somewhat similar to pancake batter, in a baking dish."

This recipe could be made with something like plums but we left out the fruit.

50g plain flour
30g cocoa powder
75g caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 eggs
1 cup cream
1 cup chopped dark chocolate (we use 70%)

Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
Sift the flour, cocoa and sugar and mix in a bowl.
In a separate bowl, stir the vanilla, cream and eggs.
Add the vanilla mixture to the flour mixture and stir through.
Add the chocolate.
Spoon into a baking dish and bake for around 25 minutes or until cooked.
