Gluten Free Raspberry Clafoutis

Raspberry Clafoutis

I started typing this blog entry surrounded by the strong smell of freshly brewed coffee, the friendly buzz of people, & a few, rare minutes of “freedom” as one of my best friends entertains my youngest child, Grace. So very thankful to the friends who make this blog possible; because through their help, they enable me to keep on writing about food. They encourage me to not give up my day dream, which is actually a really easy & tempting thing to do some days.

Speaking of day dreams… I could dream about this dessert ALL day long. Clafoutis is one of the very few desserts I could have for breakfast, lunch and dinner; and that’s no figure of speech. I love it with tea, coffee, cold almond milk; you name it. I enjoy it warm out of the oven or cold out of the fridge at night. It’s like pumpkin pie; some like it hot, some like it cold. It’s dense and rich, yet light and has so very few ingredients-you actually blink while looking at the recipe; thinking you may have missed something crucial. Making this will only steal 10 minutes of your time (the remaining 35 mins are just bake time= time to do something else). Trust me on this one, the best use of 10 mins in the kitchen, ever!

French Raspberry Clafoutis

It’s literally made of almond flour, eggs, vanilla, raspberries, whipping cream, cornstarch & coconut sugar. That’s it. It’s gluten free, paleo and can be turned into a vegan version by simply substituting the cup of whipping cream for a cup of coconut cream. As per the eggs, you could make your own chia seed or flax eggs. The chia seed jelly acts a nice binder. But I’ll be perfectly honest with you; this custard-like dessert doesn’t taste nearly as good sans real eggs. Truths need to be said. So go ahead, this is the best use of 5-10 mins in the kitchen, ever!
