A traditional French dessert... how could you NOT want to eat this?! I am a little sad to say that while spending time in France a few years ago (before my Celiac diagnosis) I didn't get the chance to eat a "real" clafoutis. I did have my fair share of chocolate croissants, strawberry crepes, fresh baguettes and many other treats that, of course, made me feel very sick (but hey, I didn't know any better)!
Today I bring you an easy and delicious French dessert made of sweet cherries and a flan like middle dusted with powdered sugar, all of which is gluten-free!
1lb cherries, pitted (this is that hardest part of the recipe)
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup milk or almond milk
4 tbs butter, melted
1 tsp bourbon vanilla extract
1/2 cup Pamela's Pancake and Baking Mix
1/4 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Spray a glass 9" square pan with non-stick cooking spray and scatter your pitted cherries on the bottom. Place all remaining ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.
Pour batter over the cherries and bake for approximately 30 minutes and then cover with foil for the remaining 10-15 minutes of baking time (so the top doesn't brown too much). Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve at room temperature.
