- Clafoutis mango-coco

Voilà, voilà…. Here we are… The cherry season has just started… But not in UK yet.

Clafoutis is one of my favourite cake, while I am waiting for the cherries to be fully in season, bordeaux, chubby and juicy to make a classical French clafoutis, I made an exotic one with mango and coconut milk.

I am back from Prague and so ashamed that I didn’t find the inspiration to write about Czech food. Every city, every country has something to tell, a story behind a dish, a speciality, even if it’s more known for its classical music composers than its food, I am sure that they have good stuff, I just didn’t really find them… But don’t get me wrong, I loved my trip to Prague,

I am going to Tangier next week-end so there will be a post special Morocco soon, an exotic one after being at Café Baba, eating pastillas with a ‘thé à la menthe’, I can’t wait !!

A bit more of exoticism for now. Again it takes 5 min to do, it’s the kind of cake that can transport you to Caribbean straight after the first bite and it’s the perfect feast for lactose intolerant like me.

It’s my cherry clafoutis recipe but with mango and coconut milk.
