Apple and Sweet Potato ClafoutisI’m freaking out right now guys.  Its only a couple days until October and I have not been able to get my hands on any canned pumpkin.  In the land of Dubai where the rose water is flowing and all the spices known to mankind reside, pumpkin puree is very difficult to come by.  Don’t they realize that white girls NEED pumpkin?!  They have freaking durian fruit.  The fruit that smells like hot week old garbage.  But no pumpkin yet.  So I’ve been using sweet potato in place of pumpkin until I can find some.

Apple and Sweet Potato ClafoutisPrior to moving to Dubai, I never heard of a clafoutis before.  Its a beautiful and delicate French pastry with a flan-like batter.  Its typically baked with plumbs or cherries, but the batter is so basic you can use any fruit or combinations of flavors you like.  I love desserts that can be a blank canvas!  Since Fall is here, I went with sweet potatoes and cinnamon apples to create the most perfect Apple and Sweet Potato Clafoutis.

    Durian is so gross omg! I hate the smell- but apparently it tastes delicious- I’ve just never gotten that far. This clafoutis looks awesome! You’re definitely bringing the fall flavors even though you don’t have any pumpkin!

      Thank you so much Medha! I will never ever try a durian. I’ve never opened one up, but from the stories I hear its horrible.
