Fig What?

Fig Clafouti
{Everyday Food, October 2008}
"This is supposed to be more custardy than cakey, which, because of a slight overbake, mine turned out like the latter, but it was still tasty- compare it to a glorified fig newton."
2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
8 ounces Mission figs, stems removed, coarsely chopped
1 1/4 cup everyday baking mix
3 large eggs
1 cup half and half
Confectioners' sugar, for dusting
Preheat oven to 350 and butter a 9 inch pie plate or shallowe 1-quart baking dish. In a small bowl, toss figs with 1/4 baking mix. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, half and half, butter, and remaining cup of figs. Stir until just combined. Transfer to greased pie plate and place on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until the center is set, about 35-40 minutes. Dust with confectioners' sugar before serving.
Everyday baking mix:
6 cups flour
3 cups sugar
2 Tbsp baking powder
1 Tbsp salt
Stir, and store at room temp for up to 3 month. Whisk before using. Makes 9 cups. Look at everyday food's website for further recipes using everday mix.
