Cherry Clafoutis

Clafoutis sounds all fancy and intimidating, doesn’t it? I'll bet dollars to (keto friendly) donuts that it would demystify the dish a lot if I told you it was a baked custard with berries. Call it what you will, this dessert is downright delicious!

A traditionalist would argue that a real clafoutis will be made with cherries that have the pits/stones still intact as it adds a hint of almond to the dish. Our Keto version has cherries that are pitted and cut in half for ease of eating and also to keep the carb value down.

Stone fruit don’t usually grace the list of go to fruits on a ketogenic diet, but in reality, cherries are per 100g, which is very comparable to raspberries, strawberries and other members of the berry family. So, go ahead and indulge. Like all berries, enjoy in moderation and easy does it. It’s easy to over consume and spike your blood sugars on such yummy Keto friendly sweets. This is a little dab will do ya, type of dessert

This recipe sparks a very happy memory for us, one of warm nights, champagne and a very tall tower that sparkles in the night. We hope it helps to make you many happy memories as well. Vive la Paris!
