autumn in the air...

it's still hot-as-blazes here, but there is a little kiss of a breeze in the air.  between the colds spreading amongst our children and the desperate missing-of-up-north-autumn memories, i needed to make something grain-free, dairy free, and full of spicy fall goodness.  when my teenage son asked for the dutch babies we used to make for breakfasts in the fall, i took the challenge and we created these.  they are so warm and rich and they taste like autumn.  plus the ginger and cinnamon are so good for you, and they're super low in sugar!

grain free dutch babies

  1/3 cup butter

8 eggs

1 cup coconut milk

1/3 cup arrowroot

1/4 cup chestnut flour

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 tsp lemon extract

1 packet stevia (or 6 drops lemon flavored liquid stevia)

preheat oven to 425 degrees.  as oven is preheating, melt butter in a 9x13 glass baking dish until it just starts to brown. (careful!  it goes from brown to burnt quickly!)

blend remaining ingredients in a blender, beginning with eggs, then adding remaining ingredients.  blend for approximately 45 seconds to one minute total.

carefully pour batter over browned butter in the baking dish, and bake at 425 degrees for approximately 23 minutes.

top with spiced fruit compote and sprinkle with finely chopped, toasted nuts (we love hazelnuts!).

spiced fruit compote

3 tablespoons butter

2 teaspoons fresh grated ginger

1/2 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg

1 teaspoon cinnamon

3 cups frozen peaches

1 cup frozen blackberries

2 tablespoons maple sugar 

melt butter in a medium saucepan.  stir in ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon to bring out their flavor.  add maple sugar and peaches, stirring to coat.

allow peaches to simmer approximately 20 minutes, or until peaches are soft juices begin to thicken.

gently stir in blackberries and simmer just until soft (you want blackberries to retain their "pop" and not break down).

serve over frozen yogurt or waffles or grain free dutch babies!

of course, we had to serve these with our favorite maple-sprinkled-bacon.  and cream-laced coffee.

About Me
I'm a mom of five, one-time semi-finalist for The Next Food Network Star, now "focusing" on my photography business and home-educating our awesome growing chefs.
My favorite things to cook
garlic, sweets, and thai!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I can still taste my grandma Margaret's fried peach pies, grandpa's tomatoes fresh and warm from the garden sun (eaten whole while standing at the kitchen window)... Grandma Rose's five cheese macaroni and marinated hearts of palm. Now we're making our own traditions with dad's jalapeno mac n' cheese and my son's made-from-scratch-with-no-recipe pie crust (and any filling that strikes his fancy!).
My cooking triumphs
Learning to cook at all! Learning to love chicken even when I've held it raw. Enjoying bananas and brussels sprouts! Teaching my kiddos to cook and letting them experiment, without my input, to create their own masterpieces.
My cooking tragedies
The ginormous bowl of tuna pasta salad (which I detest!) which got pitched directly after I made it, on a pregnancy-induced-craving whim... the "vinegar and sour cream" crock-pot chicken I made my new husband of two weeks, which he couldn't choke down!
