I was looking for a quick dessert and just happened to have some grapes in the ‘fridge. Next thing I knew, there was a clafoutis in the oven!

Clafoutis is a French dessert that is traditionally made with cherries with the pits – along with milk that has been steeped in ground almonds.

I have made the traditional, but I have also made numerous variations on the theme. It’s one of those recipes that you can do anything to!

Green Grape Clafoutis

  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp creme de casis
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 375°.

Butter 10″ pie plate and sprinkle with demerara sugar.

Arrange grapes in bottom of pie plate.

Beat eggs and sugar until frothy.  Add flour, salt, creme de casis, and vanilla and mix until smooth.  Add milk and mix until smooth.

Carefully pour batter over grapes and bake about 35 minutes or until knife in center comes out clean.

I’ve made them with peaches, apricots, cherries, bananas and raspberries… go for it and have fun!
