Banana & Blueberry Custard Clafoutis

Banana & Blueberry Custard Clafoutis - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
Clafouti (pronounced as Klafuti) is a classic French dessert which is baked using a batter similar to a pancake batter, over fruits.
The batter is baked around the fruit (cherries/ berries/ plums /saluted apples and pears) creating a light, airy, pudding-like texture inside with a mild crispy top outside. It is generally served with a dollop of fresh whipped cream or ice cream. The original French dessert uses eggs as the main ingredient.
This egg free version of the same is baked using whole wheat flour & almond flour, white chia seeds, coconut sugar, banana & blueberries and is flavored with vanilla custard powder. Almonds are rich in protein and very nutritious.
Coconut sugar containing all the essential vitamins and minerals is a healthy sweetener. It is further fortified with fruits and so is a healthy snack / dessert for kids and quick to bake. With the butter and the batter, it is a treat to the senses as well, to see this dessert puffing up in the oven.
