This easy recipe for gluten free sour cherry clafoutis is a simple dessert using fresh or frozen cherries. This tart like dessert is based on a French dessert that is light and delicious.



1 Tbsp. Coconut Oil or Butter for pan
1 1/4 pounds Sour Cherries, pitted
1/2 cup Gluten Free Flour
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1 cup Milk
1/2 cup Heavy Cream
1/4 cup Granulated Sugar
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
3 large Eggs


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9-inch baking dish with coconut oil or butter.

Pour your cherries in an even layer on the bottom of the baking dish.

In a large mixing bowl blend together the gluten free flour, baking powder, milk, heavy cream, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla and eggs.

Pour the batter over the cherries in your baking dish.

Bake at 350 degrees for 55 minutes or until set. The top will be slightly browned. The dessert will jiggle in the pan but a toothpick or knife should come out clean.

The dessert will deflate as it cools. Serve warm with a sprinkle of powdered sugar on top.


You can also use the traditional sweet cherries, but you may want to decrease the sugar in the recipe slightly.
