Gluten-Free Fig Clafoutis Recipe

Gluten-Free Fig Clafoutis

We’re in the middle of fig season, and it’s glorious! Well, technically there are two fig seasons – one around June and another between August and October. I don’t know about you, but I love figs and have found great use for them recently – in desserts and in appetizers. For the Nov/Dec issue of the magazine, I made these amazing figs stuffed with goat cheese as part of my 5-ingredient starters article. You’ll have to wait until that issue comes out to get that recipe, but in the meantime, here’s an amazing dessert recipe made with figs – a Gluten-Free Fig Clafoutis.

A clafoutis, pronounced clah-foo-tee, is a traditional French dessert with a thick batter and fruit (usually black cherries but I’ve made several variations) baked in a buttered dish. In this recipe, I’ve added some dairy-free options, if needed. I used Wholesome Organic Sugar to add just the right amount of sweetness, starting with a butter/sugar layer at the base and ending with a light sprinkling of sugar on top! (Just a side note, Wholesome is still running its Sweet Relief Baking Pack special, which included cane sugar, brown sugar, confectioners sugar, and raw honey, all for just $19.99, and all proceeds go to Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response Fund.)

This dessert is easy, yet elegant and sophisticated. It’s perfect for a special dinner with friends or family, or a romantic date night.

    Could you make this with other types of fruit?

      Hi Linda,

      Yes, you could. The type of fruit might change the cooking length but not by much if at all. You can also check out the other clafoutis recipes I have here: https://simplygluten-free.com/blog/tag/clafoutis there’s one with pear, cherry, and cranberry.
