Grape Clafoutis – the best clafoutis you’ll ever have. With grapes, not cherries.
About a year ago I discovered this wonderful French dessert, the clafoutis or sometimes spelled as clafouti. It is now one of my favorite desserts to bake in the summer. I have made this with cherries and apricots before. This is the first time I made it with green grapes and I believe this is my favorite version of it.
It is such a beautiful and delicious dessert, just thinking about it now, makes me wish I had a slice in front of me. Normally the clafoutis is made with black cherries with their pits in, supposedly the pits release a wonderful flavor as the clafoutis bakes. The batter itself is thick like a flan batter and it’s super easy to make. The clafoutis is also dusted off with powdered sugar, but this time I didn’t because I find it is sweet enough for me.
