Clafoutis, or clafouti, is a French desert traditionally made with black cherries, now made with various fruits that are arranged in a baking dish, covered with batter and baked. The clafoutis is then dusted with powdered sugar and eaten warm out of the oven. Ours is a clafoutis with a twist. For starters, it is savory, with fire-roasted red peppers and Kalamata olives, transforming it into a dish of classic Greek flavors. It makes a wonderful appetizer or first course with a little salad and certainly a great conversation piece in a brunch.
Pre-heat your oven to 350ºF. Butter a 9” round or square pan or similar sized baking dish. Mix the first four ingredients in a bowl until you have a nice thick batter. Add the peppers, olives, herbs and butter and mix until all the ingredients are well-coated. Pour everything into the dish and bake for 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Serve warm or at room temperature. Enjoy!
