"I was looking around for a name for this unusual clafoutis-like combination of peaches, blackberries, thyme, and black pepper. I saw an article that said in France a clafoutis that uses fruit other than cherries is called a flognarde. I enjoy saying flognarde so much that I think even if this recipe hadn't come out as well as it did I would still make it regularly, just to say 'flognarde'."

This is like three deserts in one. It comes out very pretty too. I didn't have blackberries so I used blueberries and used two peaches and it was wonderful!

It came out just beautiful…..

Picked a bunch of blackberries and peaches and was looking for a good way to use them all up. The recipe sounded unusual and interesting so I thought I'd give it a try. My family loved it :)

Sorry to say, we were disappointed. The dough was very heavy Maybe it would be better with white flour.
