An easy versatile favorite.This basic recipe can be made using wheat or fine spelt flour, and can be made dairy-free.



Ingredients / Directions: 

Combine the following ingredients in a bowl and beat lightly with a whisk until well combined, but not foamy:

3 eggs
1/2 c milk or substitute
2 tsp - 1 Tbsp vanilla or 1 Tbsp dark rum
1/4 c light honey, maple syrup, agave syrup, or sugar
1/2 c fine whole spelt or wheat flour
1/8 tsp salt
*1/8 tsp freshly grated nutmeg (*optional)

Generously butter or oil a pie plate. Sprinkle with 1Tbsp sugar (optional).

Add 3 - 4 c of your choice of fruit into the prepared pan:

Pour batter over fruit and bake in a pre-heated oven at 350 for about 50 minutes, or until puffy and golden brown. Rotate half way through baking.

Enjoy warm, at room temperature, or cold. Great for dessert,

Hello Pattycake¡¡ revisiting my homepage at Group Recipes I found your nice comment for the Fig Tart and your mention to the clafouti you bake with fruit and... I love it¡¡ what a nice recipe and I do LOVE to use whole spelt flour too. I like it warm so far that I use to re-warm it in the microwave for a few seconds prior to eating.
I have booked your blog so I can see more of your healthy and nice recipes.
Cheers from Spain.

muchas gracias amiga

Clafouti & Diabetes

Hey there Patricia,

I made this recipe with my cooking healthy with diabetes group last friday. It was a hit! We used 4 c's of frozen mixed berries and we used brown sugar splenda to cut the added sugar in half. It tasted great and everyone in the group saw how fast and easy this crowd pleaser was to make! Thanks again.
