Slow-Cooker Gluten-Free Pear Clafoutis

Clafoutis is a soft, pancake-like breakfast with fruit. If you choose to use a larger slow cooker than the specified 2.5-quart, you will need to reduce the cooking time. When the sides are golden brown and a toothpick stuck in the middle comes out clean, the clafoutis is done.
