Claflouti or Clafloutis:  is a baked French dessert of black cherries (or other fruit) arranged in a buttered dish and covered with a thick flan-like batter. The clafoutis is dusted with powdered sugar and served lukewarm. (via Wikipedia)

A dear friend had brought a bowl full of amazing peaches to a party at my home and left them for me to make something special for the church potluck the next day. I searched and searched for ideas. I wanted something healthy but sweet. But everything I found was basically a variation of a peach crumble which has lots of flour and butter.


But then I found a recipe for a clafouti and I thought how lovely it would look with the peaches fanned out. I also realized that peaches would taste lovely with Cardamom and I do have a bottle of Cardamom I’m trying to use up.


Perfect I had my recipe and it’s even healthy! Even if you eat 2 slices you are under 150 calories and full of protein and low carb. It’s the perfect dessert!
