Mixed Berry Clafoutis

This is a rustic French custard-like dessert eaten warm. It is made with eggs, milk, fruit, and dusted with powdered sugar. You can make this with fresh berries, plums or even peaches. Because this recipe is more of a custard, you have to use whole eggs, however to lighten it up you can use low fat milk. For easy portion control you could bake this in ramekins, but remember that the baking time would be less.
