Clafoutis with Muscat Grapes

Clafoutis is a classic dessert in Provence. Traditionally it’s made with cherries, but it is completely acceptable to use fruit that is in season. However, berries (such as strawberries) are not a terrific choice because the juices run. Try melon, grapes, peaches, pears or a combination of your favourites. In this version of clafoutis, Paula uses Muscat grapes.

Clafoutis with Muscat Grapes

When I am in Provence I am always asked to bring a dessert when going to a dinner party. I have a minimalist kitchen so I have to come up with a dessert such as clafoutis that is simple.

Try serving this dessert with a bit of ice cream. If you can get your hands on lavender ice cream, even better!
