Spelt Plum Clafoutis – Dairy Free

Seasonal plums cooked in batter and topped with demerara sugar heated under the grill to give a crispy, crunchy lid. This dessert is simple, opulent and as romantic as the French name implies. Perfect make-ahead dessert for guests.

I can’t write at the moment due to a heavy duty psychological blockage that I need to clear, even though my life is utterly fantastic currently. Perhaps that’s the problem, that it’s harder to accept praise than it is to be negative. Anyway, I’m going to let the pictures do the talking for this dairy free spelt plum clafoutis, but I will say one thing – it’s fucking delicious.

Take care
