Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Drain the fruit reserving the juice. Toss berries with 1 tbsp sugar, then spread in an even layer in a 24cm round ovenproof dish, greased with vegetable spread.
  2. Sift the flour and cinnamon into a large bowl and stir in the remaining sugar. In a jug, beat the eggs and coconut milk together, then whisk into the flour mixture to make a smooth batter. Pour the batter slowly over the fruit then bake for 40-45 mins.
  3. Heat the squash and reserved juice in a pan. Stir in the arrowroot until thickened. Dust the clafoutis with icing sugar and serve drizzled with the coulis.

First time making clafoutis - so disappointed. All the flavour seemed to come from the fruit with little from the surrounding batter. I wonder did I go wrong somewhere - the texture was quiche like - yuck!

Fantastic dish have made this for both my mum who is gluten intolerant and other friends and family who aren`t and it always goes down well. Very quick and easy to make, would highly recommend.

Made for dinner party for friends without testing it first. Had no idea if it would work. Only one of the party was gluten intolerant but everyone loved it, men and women. We had it with 'Heavenly' vanilla ice cream, but making it today with normal plain flour & served with custard to have after sunday lunch. A shame people may not try this because it is gluten free recipie. Highly recommend.

I made this last night and it went down well with everyone, not just the gluten-free guest :) I couldn't find arrowroot anywhere though, so left it out and my coulis didn't look like coulis, just thin fruit juice... Any suggestions as to something else that would thicken it?

Fantastic recipe. Easy to make and delicious.

I'm about to try this recipe for an early dinner on Sunday. Will it work using ordinary flour? Will it stretch to serve 7? I'm not being mean as I will probably also have strawberries and icecream.

This is stunning and so easy. I used blackcurrants from the garden, and added more flour than suggested. Everyone enjoyed it and it was even good cold with ice cream the following day.

You will find loads of delicious recipes that are gluten, wheat, dairy and egg-free, some sweet and some savoury, on www.allergycooks.co.uk (they also tell you where to buy special flours and other ingredients).

Can I ask the Good food team, I have noticed on some tins of coconut milk that gluten is an ingredient, why I don't know and to warn others who are on gluten free diets to read the ingredients and allergy advice carefully. The Amoy brand coconut has gluten. I love this recipe and although at first became a bit down when I was told to try gluten free have found so many lovely recipes that I enjoy that it has been a turning point in my health and diet. Thank you GoodFood team for keeping me happily cooking with these receipes. Any ideas who stocks chestnut flour for your other chocolate chestnut cake please........

I made this for some friend's and it went down a storm, all my friend's want this recipe, and they're not Gluten free. My son ate it, and he normally only eats strawberries and banana's. Will make again soon, yummy with fresh cream or dairy free ice-cream..
