Clafoutis is a French batter pudding which originates from the Limousin region and this recipe is from a French friend who showed me how to make it and the recipe is in the measurements I took from her. I prefer to use pears, apricots or even apples instead of the traditional cherries, which require more preparation. Gluten free flour is substituted for wheat flour and works well with a 1:1 substitution and no additional liquid. If you don't have an all-purpose gluten-free flour to hand, you can make your own, with 2 parts rice flour, 2 parts sorghum flour, 1 part potato flour, 1 part tapioca flour - measured in grams or ounces rather than cups. A tablespoon or so of ground almonds will also completely change the texture from a batter pudding to a more cake-y dish. It's delicious either way.


  • Prep Time : 10 min
  • Cook Time : 40 min
  • Ready Time : 50 min



  • 1 glass gluten free all purpose flour
  • 1 glass milk or soy milk
  • 1 glass sugar I prefer to use 3/4 glass
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 apples or another fruit of your choice
  • 1 sachet vanilla sugar or teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1.5 tablespoons canola or sunflower oil
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder


Mix together all dry ingredients.
Add the eggs, oil and milk, a little at a time and mix well with a hand whisk.
Peel the apples. Quarter, core and slice and arrange in a buttered flan dish.
Pour over the batter.
Bake at 180 degrees celsius (350 F) for 40 minutes, until golden.
Best served warm not hot with vanilla ice cream.
