Pumpkin Hazelnut Flaugnarde (Clafoutis) Recipe
A warm rustic pumpkin custard sweetened with agave and baked with toasted hazelnuts. This is the perfect ending to a Thanksgiving feast and a wonderful lighter alternative to pumpkin pie. Don’t let the fancy name scary you, it’s actually very easy to make, the only appliances I used were a blender and an oven!
I just returned last night from the Foodbuzz Festival in San Francisco, what a great time! Today I’m a little jet lagged and slow getting back into the groove of things. Next on my list of things to make for the holidays was this wonderful dessert that doubled as my breakfast this morning. Who doesn’t like dessert for breakfast, right???
