Gluten Free Pear Clafoutis

I wanted to make cupcakes yesterday for November’s Go Ahead Honey it’s Gluten Free challenge, however I learned that I had already missed the deadline. (Sad day!) I was still keen to bake something, so I thought that I would try something new from one of my newer cookbooks: Gluten Free Gourmet Desserts and Baked Goods. (Or you can see a Google Book Copy.) Everything seriously looks so delicious in this book – I bought it because of the pictures, not the recipes. It also taught me that gourmet == french cuisine. I must live under a rock as I didn’t know that before.

One delightful looking picture caught my interest: something called Pear Clafoutis. I had no idea what clafoutis was – the author gives it the translation of fruit cobbler. Wikipedia gives a better answer:

Clafoutis is a baked French dessert that is typically made by baking fresh fruit (traditionally cherries) and a batter, halfway between a Yorkshire pudding/pancake batter and a custard [1], in a baking dish. – Wikipedia

And what can I say? Regardless of how one describes it, it was delicious. And very simple!

Gluten Free Pear Clafoutis

2/3 c. each of almond flour, brown sugar and rice flour
3 eggs
1 c. rice milk (I used Ryza)
3 pears, peeled and sliced
Sprinkle of cinnamon

  1. Preheat oven to 400C.
  2. Oil a glass or earthenware cake or loaf pan. (I used a glass loaf pan)
  3. Combine almonds, sugar and rice flour in a bowl.
  4. Add eggs.
  5. Mix in rice milk, a little at a time.
  6. Fold fruit into batter.
  7. Pour into prepared pan and sprinkle cinnamon on top.
  8. Bake for 30-45 minutes until set.

I’m not sure if you’re supposed to eat it warm or cold, but both tasted good!

    That looks so delicious, but for some reason I am still quite intimidated by gluten free recipes.

  3. YUM! I’ve been thinking about trying to find a gluten free cobbler since my husband was recently diagnosed with Celiac. Glad I found your blog through SITS!

  4. He was diagnosed at the end of Sept., so almost exactly 2 months ago. We’ve been eating a lot of soup since then, haha.

  5. Hello fellow SITSta! I need your help!

    Could you vote for me in Iron Cupcake?

    (I am campaigning for votes….because I put a lot of time and detail into my cupcake)

    I am currently behind The Baker’s Remix……boo..L

    If there is anything I can do for you in the future don’t hesitate to ask! (When I say this I am completely serious!)
