One of my favourite recipes…

To keep you busy until you’re able to visit me in the Teaching Kitchen,
try this gluten-free / dairy-free, Paleo, and/or AIP recipe that is part of my weekly repertoire.

Plum Clafoutis

– Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free –

If you enjoy seasonal fruit as much as I do, then you’re definitely going to want to try this recipe!  Cherries, apricots, peaches, blackberries, figs… this is my “go-to” recipe
to spotlight season fruit.


3 cups of fruit
1-1/4 c coconut milk
2 X 1/4 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt
2 Tbsp rice flour
2 Tbps buckwheat flour
1 Tbsp + 1 tsp tapioca starch


  •  Preheat oven to 350*F.
  • In the bowl of a high-speed blender, mix all ingredients except the fruit and one quarter-cup of sugar.  Blend at high-speed for 1 minute.
  • In an 8″X8″ glass baking dish, pour a thin layer of batter to coat the bottom.
  • Place dish on the stove-top, on medium-low heat, until the batter begins to thicken and form a thin cooked layer.
  • Remove from the heat and place fruit on this cooked layer.
  • Pour the remaining batter over top of the fruit, almost to cover.
  • Bake for 20 minutes.  Remove and sprinkle with remaining quarter cup of sugar.
  • Return to oven for 20-25 minutes or until cooked through (ie bubbling in the center).
  • Allow to cool slightly before serving.
