Abi Balingit - Jackfruit-Coconut Milk Clafoutis

Jackfruit-Coconut Milk Clafoutis

I love Jacques Pépin’s apricot clafoutis recipe so much that I wanted to give it a tropical spin using some of my favorite Filipino ingredients including jackfruit and coconut milk. This custard dessert is easy to whip up and tastes delicious right out of the oven or, given some time to chill, and served at room temperature.
