Clafoutis with chocolate has been on my mind since I made Phoebe and Cara's (of Big Girls, Small Kitchen) delicious clafoutis recipe from their new book: In The Small Kitchen. I went with white chocolate here, but you could use dark chocolate, if you prefer, or skip the chocolate all together and just stick with the berries. I baked this in mini custard cups, but this can also be baked in half-pint mason jars for a super cute presentation. —WinnieAb
whole eggs, preferably organic and free-range
teaspoon orange flower water- optional (or use vanilla extract if you prefer)
blanched almond flour/meal (I use Bob's Red Mill brand)
cups organic raspberries
white chocolate chips- optional (I use ghirardhelli)
In a blender, combine the eggs, cream, orange flower water (or vanilla), almond flour and sugar. Process until thoroughly mixed.
Place 6-7 raspberries into each of your custard cups or glass jars. Distribute the white chocolate chips evenly and then pour the batter equally into each one. Place custard cups on a baking sheet and transfer carefully to the oven.
Bake for 30-35 minutes until the the custard is set. Enjoy warm with a dusting of powdered sugar, or serve with cream, creme fraiche, whipped cream, or vanilla ice cream if you like; these are also good served chilled.
I grew up in a restaurant family (my parents owned the now closed Quilted Giraffe in NYC) and I've always loved to cook.
My interest in the connection between food and health led me to pursue a graduate degree in naturopathic medicine. I don't practice medicine anymore; I have a blog called Healthy Green Kitchen that I started in May of 2009 and I wrote a book called One Simple Change that will be published in January, 2014.
I live in upstate New York with my family and many pets.
