Mixed Berry Clafouti Recipe
by Laura Villanti on April 14th, 2013

a delicious dessert - can use cherries or berries

We enjoyed this delicious cake/dessert at our recent GAPS Graduation Celebration.  It was enjoyed by all.  So simple to make.  It could even be a breakfast accompaniment, when using a lot of berries in it.
The recipe that I used is based on this recipe.

Cherry Clafouti- 6 generous servings

About 2 cup of cherries, pitted and cut in half (pit first, then measure)
(I used 2 cups of a mix of elderberries, blackberries and blueberries)
3 tablespoons coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder (skip this for GAPS)
3 eggs
1/2-3/4 teaspoon almond extract ( I used vanilla extract with the mixed berries)
1/4 cup of honey
1/4 extra virgin coconut oil  

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees

1-Grease a nine inch pie pan. Place the pitted cherries in it and spread over the bottom of the pan.
2-Mix together the coconut flour, salt and baking powder in a bowl.
3-In a small bowl, mix together the eggs and vanilla extract. Whisk briskly into the dry ingredients until there are no lumps left.
4-Gently melt the honey and coconut oil together over the stovetop. Make sure to remove it just when everything is melted. If it’s too hot, you could curdle your eggs (let it cool if you let it get to hot). In a slow stream, add to the bowl of whisked ingredients, whisking while you add it.
5-Pour the batter over the cherries and place in the oven. Cook for 25-30 minutes, until browned on top and a toothpick stuck in the middle of the dessert comes out clean. Cool for 10-20 minutes, and eat while hot.
Double batch fits well in a 13 x 9 x 2 glass pan
