Peach Blueberry Clafouti

Do you have old peaches you need to use? This easy and delicious clafouti (CLAH-FOO-TEA) works with most fruits, but it's particularly good with peaches, old or new. My family has been gobbling up this recipe up for years! It comes together in just a few minutes. Blend the six ingredients together, pour over the fruit, and bake to make a surprisingly easy breakfast or dessert. Be sure to cook it long enough! Sometimes I use fresh blueberries when I need to use them up, but I usually use frozen blueberries and it's just as good. Just use almond milk and gluten-free flour to make this recipe gluten and dairy free. Enjoy!

Ingredients

2 large ripe peaches, peeled and sliced (old peaches are easy to peel without blanching them) 1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen 1 1/2 cups milk (or almond milk) 3/4 cup whole wheat flour, white whole wheat flour, or gluten-free flour 1/3 cup pure maple syrup or raw honey 5 eggs 1/4 tsp salt 1/2 tsp almond extract powdered sugar for garnish

Directions

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread fruit in a 10" round pan (or 12" x 9" pan) sprayed with non-stick spray so bottom of dish is covered with fruit.
2) In a blender, combine milk, flour, maple syrup or honey, eggs, salt, and almond extract, and blend on high speed, until well-blended.
3) Pour mixture over fruit and bake for about 50-60 minutes, until surface is very firm in the middle. Frozen fruit works well in this recipe, but has more moisture and usually needs more baking time. Beware that if you are using honey, rather than maple syrup, it will brown before it's done. When using honey in this recipe, cover it with foil when it becomes golden brown and continue cooking it. If using maple syrup, it will brown closer to when it's finished. Don't worry about over-cooking this recipe; err to the side of cooking it more, rather than less.
4) Remove from oven and allow to cool. Dust with powdered sugar through a tea strainer or a shaker. Cut into 12 slices and serve. It's great warm, room temperature, or straight out of the refrigerator.
