Flognarde (flow-nyard) is a French dessert – it’s kind of difficult to define as to what kind of dessert it is. It’s basically composed of fruit and a pancake-like batter that’s baked in the oven for a set amount of time. You can use just about any kind of fruit, if you use cherries it’s called a clafouti, so basically flognarde is the version that’s made with other fruit. While it is traditionally a dessert, it can also be for breakfast. This recipe uses apples and currants, but as said, you can use whatever fruit you want. The lemon and vanilla extracts help flavour the batter, however, they are optional.
It is a perfect baked good for the autumn and winter!
1 lb. apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
1/2 cup currants, approximately
1/4 cup honey
1 cup coconut milk
1 cup almond flour
Ground cinnamon, approx. 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon or to taste, plus extra for dusting
1/2 to 1 teaspoon lemon extract (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350ºF. Fill a circular casserole dish or baking pan with the chopped apples and sprinkle the currants over top. Dust with ground cinnamon.
- Beat eggs and honey; add coconut milk, almond flour, cinnamon, and lemon extract. Pour the batter over the fruit and bake for 40 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool and serve. Enjoy!
