Can I use other fruit to make French clafoutis?
I had fresh from the farmers market blueberries, so I thought it was the perfect way to use them.
The traditional recipe calls for unpitted cherries, but other fruit variations such as peach, plums, strawberries or blackberries would all make a wonderful clafoutis.
Can I make gluten-free clafoutis?
Yes, you can!
I’ve tested this French blueberry clafoutis with gluten-free flour and rice flour (if you’re in the UK look for Dove gluten-free flour or rice flour) and the result was pretty much the same as using all-purpose flour.

What a delicious dessert! I just adore Blueberries! It looks so easy to make.
I love everything and anything blueberry. This clafoutis looks absolutely yum.
I have tried cherry clafoutis, but not blueberry clafoutis, you changed my view, I am going to give it a try as blueberry is my favorite when comes to baking.
This is just beautiful! Never thought of blueberries in clafoutis!

Love the use of blueberries, but I am so interested in the cake part. You had me at custard...I bet this dessert recipe is so comforting.

This has been on my list to try FOREVER. I just need a pint of fresh blueberries to go on sale and I will definitely check it out.
What a gorgeous looking recipe! Would you never believe I've never tried clafoutis before? I need to remedy this!
I haven't tried A2 milk yet. I will have to look for it.

Your dessert sounds simply delicious! I've never heard of A2 Milk before, but I'm gonna tell a good friend of mine about it, who happens to be lactose intolerant.

This sounds divine!! We always have a surplus of blueberries here in Canada and I get bored with the usual blueberry muffins or crisps!
Thank you so much! Hope you give it a try 🙂

Well the blueberry lover in me LOVES the sound of this recipe. I have never attempted to make one of these before, but after watching the video...seems like a nice weekend experiment in the kitchen.

Love fresh blueberries! This dish looks easy to make and totally delicious. I have seen clafoutis made with other fruits too
Definitely, you can do clafoutis with all sorts of fruit 🙂
Noel Lizotte says
This will be perfect for brunch, once our weather cools off a tad. Fall is usually 50F degrees and a warm blueberry breakfast would hit the spot. I'm looking forward to try it.
Yes! It's the perfect fall breakfast treat 🙂
Oh, I really love making clafoutis, and eating it, of course 😉 and blueberries really make it extra delicious! This one goes to the oven soon!

I love clafoutis..!! I love how versatile it is. My kids love the raspberry or blueberry version. I guess it because of the tart flavor that comes with these berries. This recipes look so delish. yum.!
Marisa Franca @ All Our Way says
I have never made a clafoutis before but it sounds amazingly easy. I really like the blueberry you use in it but I can also see peaches, apples, or pears. A light dessert is always welcome.
