as promised, one more peach recipe before apples & pumpkin spice start taking over the blogosphere! this one features white peaches & coconut in the most delicious clafoutis. the white-fleshed peaches tend to be less acidic & a little sweeter then a regular peach. as for the clafoutis, this dish can be served for both breakfast and dessert! when serving it for dessert, i like to top mine with a generous dollop of sweet whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. if you are not familiar with the clafoutis, it is a rustic french baked dessert that features fresh fruit (typically cherries) & a custard-like batter. the clafoutis is a simple dessert to make that gets served right from the baking dish! i like to make these year round & switch up the fruit to match the season.
to add a little extra wholesomeness to this version, i used half bob's red mill all-purpose flour & half whole wheat flour. i love the rustic flair the whole wheat flour adds to a dish. plus, it makes things a little healthy when baking with a whole grain flour. so celebrate the last couple weeks of peach season by baking yourself a clafoutis!
p.s. i can't believe we are at the end of august, where did the summer go?! it seems to go by faster every year. thank goodness we have pumpkins to look forward to next:)
