Crab and asparagus clafoutis

baking, crab, starters, thermomix

I had never knowingly come across a savoury dish classed as clafoutis, but when you look at the ingredients, they are commonly out there. This is going to be a firm dinner party favourite when I am here in guernsey. Why not in Arizona ? – simple, I can't get my hands on wonderful guernsey crab.

When you make this you have to ignore the quantity of double cream – just do it! I developed this one from a GH recipe

  • Servings: 10
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


  • 8 eggs
  • 200ml skimmed milk
  • 500ml double/heavy cream
  • Grated zest 2 lemons
  • 45g chopped chives
  • 400g crab meat ( if you like brown crab meat I suggest you mix it with white)
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 20 asparagus spears


Preheat oven to 180°C/365°F

In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, cream, lemon zest, chives and seasoning. I blended all these ingredients in Thermomix jug sp4. Chop the chives sp6 before adding the other ingredients.

Add the crab to the liquid and pour into one large or 10 individual dishes. You could use ramekins or other pretty bowls.

Lay the trimmed asparagus spears on top before baking for 25- 30 minutes (45 minutes for large size)

Serve with a green salad, and crusty bread.

Welcome to my blog! After a L O N G break from blogging during which Instagram (vannilla)took over my life, I am returning in a more varied format. Yes, I will bake and have been a Thermomix users from the days before it was cult-like. I'll share the best but I will also include that other hobby in my life, photography from my small island and beyond. If you like what you see, I'd love to hear from you! Anne

    • Thanks so much for looking in and commenting. Like you I hadn’t come across a savoury one before but this is super easy and tasty. It could be served as a main with new potatoes and veg.
