Here’s how you can make a delicious vegan blueberry clafoutis recipe quickly and easily. It’s also gluten-free!
Clafoutis is a world-known French dessert which is basically a simple baked fruit dessert with a flan-like batter. This dessert is traditionally made with black cherries, but other fruits such as berries, apples, red and sour cherries, plums, and pears can be used. It is served warm, with cream and then dusted with sugar.
The clafoutis or clafouti recipe originates from the Limousin region in France and even though its name sounds fancy, like most other French recipes, it is quite an easy recipe to make. The traditional recipe uses eggs and dairy products but you can easily veganize this delicious dessert using some silken tofu, dairy-free milk and coconut oil.
I’ve recently written a guide about the French cuisine and its most popular recipes. So if you’re looking for more amazing French recipe, check out my French Cuisine Guide. You’ll also find some links to my French recipes.
