Cherry Clafoutis is a delightfully rustic baked French fruit dessert
Comfort Foods A La French. It is traditionally made with berries or cherries, but often made with apples as well, arranged in a tart pan and covered with a thick flan-like batter. You will love the no-fuss prep and the quick healthy results!
My Cherry clafoutis is a winner:
very lightly sweetened, fragrant and totally gluten-free-friendly, and very easy to make. I love how the cherries float to the top during baking. I have taken some poetic license and added an optional light chocolate topping to my cherry clafoutis recipe (the picture clafoutis doesn’t have a chocolate topping), just because berries and chocolate go so beautifully together.
- 4 cups frozen pitted cherries
- ¼ cup coconut sugar
- 2 pouches Levana Nourishments Mixed Berry
- 3 tablespoons tapioca flour (health food stores)
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup flour, any flour including gluten-free
- ½ cup oil
- 2 cups milk, dairy-free ok
- Good pinch salt
- 1/2 cup grated semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, best quality (optional, but wonderful in the clafoutis)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Toss the cherries with the sugar and tapioca, and spread over the bottom of a greased 10-inch tart pan.
In a blender or food processor, mix the second set of ingredients until smooth, and spread evenly over the cherries. Sprinkle the chocolate evenly over the batter. Bake 30 minutes, or until the top is barely firm. Serve the clafoutis warm.
