Clafoutis, Greek Style

March 30, 2018

Greek Clafoutis

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.

Here is the recipe:

Ingredients for Clafoutis Greek Style

1 cup milk
3/4 cup flour
3 eggs
a pinch of salt
3-4 red roasted Tragano Greek Organics Capia peppers sliced thinly
1 cup sliced Tragano Greek Organics pitted Kalamata olives sliced in half
1-2 tsp room temperature butter
1-2 sprigs of fresh thyme, rosemary or Greek oregano

    Preapation steps

    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!
