Cherry Clafoutis

In the summer, I crave cherries. I freaking love cherries. But I hate those pits! I finally got myself a cherry/olive pitter and wow, why didn't I get one sooner?! It's probably my favorite kitchen accessory, second to my waffle maker (duh!). When summer rolls around, it's cherries all day, every day. Anyway, clafoutis, sounds funny, right? This classic French dessert combines juicy cherries and a rich, but light textured custard. All it takes is a blender, about 40 minutes of bake time, and BAM you've got a funny named but delicious treat, even perfect for breakfast! You can even substitute the cherries for another fruit, like peaches or berries.

Cherry Clafoutis
What you'll need:

  • 1 cup coconut or almond milk
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup + 2 tsp honey
  • 3 whole eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1.5 tsp tapioca flour
  • 2 tbsp melted grassfed butter
  • pinch of salt
  • 2-3 cups pitted cherries or other fruit
What to do:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease a cast iron skillet or baking dish with soften butter or non-stick spray (I used Chosen Foods coconut oil spray, no propellants or fillers just pure coconut oil!). 
  2. Add all the ingredients, except the fruit to a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Pour about 1/4 of the batter into the greased skillet/dish and bake at 350F for 7-10 minutes. This helps to keep your fruit from all sinking to the bottom. 
  3. Remove from the oven and top with the fruit, arranging in a pattern, if preferred. Pour over the remaining batter. Return the skillet/dish back to the oven and bake at 350F for an additional 35-40 minutes until the top is set and golden brown. 
  4. Remove from oven and cool slightly, sprinkle with powdered sugar if preferred. Serve warm.
