A clafoutis is a type of flan, usually filled with fruit. Most flans contain gluten because they are made with flour but this one uses gluten-free flour so even the most sensitive eater can enjoy it. I’ve found this recipe at the very known BBC Food Blog, and you can find the recipe here. Made with forest fruits, this delightful dessert is also high in antioxidants and other vitamins so it not only tastes and looks good, it’ll do you good too. While it’s bit more involving than a grab-out-the-freezer dessert, your efforts will be rewarded – trust me! Feel free to replace any or all the sugar with stevia powder.
Ingredients – serves 6:
- 14 ounces frozen Black Forest fruits, thawed
- 5-6 tablespoons golden caster sugar
- ½ ounce butter
- 3 ounces gluten-free plain flour – I use Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free, available at amazon.com
- ½ tsp ground cinnamon
- 4 eggs
- 1 large can coconut milk
- 3 tablespoons blackcurrant cordial
- ½ teaspoon arrowroot, blended with a little water
- 2 ounces slivered almonds
- A little icing sugar for dusting
Preheat your oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Carefully drain the fruit, remembering to save any juice. Sprinkle the berries with one tablespoon of sugar. Spread the berries in an even layer in a 9-inch round ovenproof dish which you greased with butter beforehand.
Sift the flour and cinnamon into a large bowl and then add the last of the sugar. Beat the eggs and coconut milk together in a jug. Whisk the liquid into the flour mixture to make a smooth batter. Gently pour the batter over the berries and then cook for 40-45 minutes.
Heat the cordial and reserved juice in a small saucepan. Add the arrowroot and stir until thickened. This is the coulis. Sprinkle the clafoutis with icing sugar and sprinkle the almonds all over. Serve drizzled with the coulis.
