It seems this is the age of calorie and colesterol-watching. I like this recipe in particular because it is diabetic-friendly, without depriving yourself of a refreshing dessert.
When thinking of something quick and easy to bake. this is my favourite "go-to" recipe from KRAFT FOODS HEALTHY LIVING; LIVING WELL WITH DIABETES. Have it prepared and ready to pop into the oven when you start your main course.... Presumably, your oven will already be preheated; the clafouti could be baking while you are enjoying your main course. You may use a 9 inch pie plate or (my fave), a quiche pan.
