Such a simple dessert, easy to put together at the last minute, and thoroughly lovely for every day or special occasions.
Generously butter your ramekins or mini skillets. Can be made as 1 large dessert by buttering an 8-cup baking dish.
Preheat oven to 350'
In a blender, combine milk, sugar, eggs, Amaretto, flour, and salt and blend
Pour 1/2 of the mixture into your prepared baking dish and set remaining mixture aside
Bake for 8 minutes if using small dishes or 10 minutes if using the larger dish until just slightly set but not baked through.
Leave oven on, but remove the clafoutis
Place figs cut side down on top of the partially baked custard
Pour remaining batter over the figs and return to oven.
Bake for 25-30 additional minutes (30-40 if using larger baking dish) until the clafouti is puffed and golden brown and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
Sprinkle with candied almonds and serve warm
Add almonds and sugar to a heavy pan (I use my cast iron skillet and it's perfect) and heat over medium heat, stirring constantly until sugar melts and caramelizes.
Remove from skillet and place on parchment paper for at least one hour...separating large clumps.
