Plum Crazy Clafoutis

Plum Crazy Clafoutis 4

Someone dropped off a HUGE crate of plums at my house this past summer and I needed to find some ways to use them fast. I mean, really fast. I decided to try plums in a clafoutis, some BBQ sauce, and maybe some tartlets and muffins. Up first, a French dessert called plum crazy clafoutis, a family favorite!

So, you’re probably thinking Cla-what?!

Clafoutis (French pronunciation: ​[klafuti]; Occitan: clafotís [klafuˈtis] or [kʎafuˈtiː]), sometimes in Anglophonic countries spelled clafouti, is a baked French dessert of fruit, traditionally black cherries,[1] arranged in a buttered dish and covered with a thick flan-like batter. The clafoutis is dusted with powdered sugar and served lukewarm, sometimes with cream.

While it is traditionally made with black cherries, I enjoy it with other fresh fruits, like blueberries, plums, and most summer berries.

Grainfree, Glutenfree Plum Clafoutis

We are pretty fond of this recipe and have found it to be a fun dessert, but also a great addition to any breakfast, Sunday brunch or bring-along party. I make mine lightly sweetened, and subbed in cassava flour here to make it grain free and gluten free, but you can use traditional flour 1:1 in this recipe. It will work just fine. I love this as a way to get our eggs in our diet, using Burroughs Family Farms organic, pastured eggs.
