WHAT IS CLAFOUTIS?

Clafoutis is a traditional baked French dessert with a texture and consistency similar to the one of a flan. It is traditionally made with the basic ingredients of a crepe batter. For this recipe, the egg has been replaced with a chia egg (or flax egg) and we will use cashew milk (or any other plant milk) instead of cow milk. I also have a Vegan Classic French Crepes recipe if you are interested.

WHEN IS CLAFOUTIS EATEN?

Any occasion is good to make a clafoutis. Make a clafoutis for a Christmas treat, a thanksgiving dessert, or a homemade snack for your children. Or again if you’ve been berry picking and you don’t know what to do with them, make a clafoutis!

CAN YOU EAT BROWN SUGAR PLUM CLAFOUTIS COLD?

Clafoutis is traditionally eaten warm or at room temperature. For optimized results, I recommend baking it right before serving. However, I also LOVE eating this Brown Sugar Plum Clafoutis cold, so it is totally up to you if you want to eat it cold or warm!

WHAT CAN YOU USE INSTEAD OF PLUM FOR HOMEMADE CLAFOUTIS?

You can use this recipe with basically any (preferably red) fruits, as long as the fruits are ripe so they taste sweet and not too bitter. I used plum as it is currently in season, but you can also use peaches, apricots, cherries, berries…

3- Chop the plums and spread them on the baking pan.

4- Add all the batter ingredients (plain white flourbrown sugar, potato starch, vanilla extract, vegan butter, plant milk, and chia egg) into a blender and blend until smooth.

If you are thinking of investing in a blender that is not too expensive, this Nutribullet blender is, from my experience, one of the best small blenders that you can get for an affordable price.

5- Pour the batter evenly in the baking pan and sprinkle some extra brown sugar on top.

It sure can! Freeze for up to 3 months and simply briefly reheat in the oven when you’re ready to eat it! They will be no defect of flavor.

You can also microwave your clafoutis to reheat it.

HOW TO SERVE CLAFOUTIS?

I love this Brown sugar Plum Clafoutis by itself as it already contains fruits, but you can also serve it with some extra fruit on the side or serve it on top of some homemade creme Anglaise or vegan custard sauce
