Gluten-Free Skillet Cherry Clafoutis

Some recipes are so simple you can practically memorize the ingredients and steps after the first time making it! This Gluten-Free Skillet Cherry Clafoutis recipe is one of those. This easy French treat is one of my favorite winter dessert recipes because I can use frozen cherries and it brings a little summer into cold nights! It’s also delicious with blueberries (though cherries are the traditional way of making it) or a mix of cherries and blueberries.

For this recipe, I used organic sugar (from Wholesome), organic milk, and pasture-raised eggs. I also made sure the cornstarch I used is non-GMO, as much of the corn and corn products in the U.S. is GMO. And of course, don’t forget to use pure extracts, not the imitation stuff!

This week is a cold one here in Florida – possibly the coldest we’ve had this winter, so this dessert is going to keep me warm while I snuggle up on the couch and binge-watch a good show. That’s one of the best parts about wintertime!

What’s your favorite winter dessert?
