Cherry Clafouti

What is clafouti?  Is is hard to define.  It isn't quite a custard, or a cake, or a pie, or a souffle.  It isn't any of them, but, it has elements of all of them.  How ever you what to define it, it is delicious.  You can make it with any kind of fruit and add your flavorings or spices that go with the fruit.  This one is with cherries and I added a small amount of almond extract to compliment them.  It uses a minimal amount of sweetener and we all know the benefits of eating a variety of fresh fruits.  It is also a source of protein and calcium.  So you don't have to feel like your throwing away your healthy living goals. 

Cherry Clafouti

1 tsp. spelt flour (as always you can use all purpose)
2 cups pitted, halved sweet cherries
3/4 cup spelt flour
1/4 tsp. salt
2 cups skim milk
3 large egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. almond extract

Grease a 10" deep pie pan with coconut oil.  Dust with the teaspoon of flour.  Arrange the cherry halves in a single layer in the bottom of the pan.  In a bowl whisk together the flour and salt.  Slowly pour in 1 cup of the milk, whisking the entire time.  Make sure there aren't clumps of flour.  In another bowl, whisk together the other cup of milk with the eggs, sugar and the extracts.  Slowly pour the milk into the flour mixture, whisking the entire time.  Once combined and smooth; pour the carefully pour the batter over the cherries.  Bake in an oven that has been preheated to 375 for 40 to 45 minutes, or until set in the center.  When you remove it from the oven and it starts to cool, it will fall.  Serve at room temperature or cold.

If you want a more creamy white color, use a different sweetener.  The coconut sugar darkens the color to what it is added.  In the picture below you will see I served it with whipped coconut cream.  Enjoy the fruits of summer while we have them!

  1. 3 Studies SHOW Why Coconut Oil Kills Belly Fat.

    The meaning of this is that you literally kill fat by consuming coconut fat (in addition to coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 studies from big medical journals are sure to turn the conventional nutrition world around!
