Cherry vegan clafoutis: a summer cake

The clafoutis is a typical French cake very creamy, is made with whole cherries (yes, with bone and everything) and a liquid mass, similar to that of the crepes. It is a dessert originally from Lemosín, but spread rapidly throughout the country. Although the original clafoutis is prepared with cherries, there are many variants with other fruits, each of a different region and each with a different name.

The version I propose today is vegan and gluten free but retains all the charm of the traditional recipe; It is also very useful when reusing the remains that remain when preparing homemade oat milk.

Let’s see what you think!
