Clafouti or Clafoutis (pronounced klaw-foo-TEE) is a classic, rustic-style French country dessert from the Limousin region and traditionally uses cherries like this famous Clafoutis recipe by Julia Child , although people make them with many different fruits including pears, nectarines, peaches or raspberries.
We don't have it often, because we aren't eating much fructose, eat no sugar, no grains, avoid phytic acid and even curtail our raw organic honey to minute amounts, but my best beloveds get a hankering for cobblers and this is close, somewhere between custard and cake. This dessert is almost guilt free!
I actually got the idea for this from Mark Sisson’s Primal Cookbook as he had a recipe for Peach Clafouti in it, but since peaches and maple syrup are hard to find in tropical Asia, I gave it my own little twist.
Mangoes, coconut flour and coconut milk are SUPER cheap and available all year here at the markets, thus it's logical to use them here and it is extra scrumptious. I also didn't want to waste my raw milk when coconut is so cheap.
This recipe is so simple, easy and fast, that even Mozart can make it and can be used as a dessert or breakfast.
2-3 Tablespoons Organic Raw Honey 2-3 Cups Sliced Mango 1 Cup Coconut Milk 4 Pastured Eggs 1/4 Cup Coconut Flour
PALEO MANGO CLAFOUTI RECIPE
Preheat oven to 375 F
Grease shallow baking dish with organic grass fed butter or organic coconut oil
Slice mangoes and place them in the bottom of the baking pan
In a blender, put the rest of the ingredients - honey, coconut milk, coconut flour, eggs- and blend for 2 minutes
Pour over the mangoes and place in oven
Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden
Serve warm ( or good cold too the next morning)
This tends to go very quickly in our family so it's been hard to get photos!
I find it amazing that I have become a healthy baking machine in ASIA, but do enjoy seeing my little creations on the table and how they are enjoyed. Next I will have to give you my banana bread recipe which is probably the most popular one I do every week.
Have you ever had a clafouti before? We even love the new word! Who doesn't like mangoes, eh? Will you try this recipe or maybe substitute a compatible fruit bountiful in your area?
