For some reason I chuckle every time I say “Clafoutis “, I have no idea why, may be it sounds similar to something that’s funny.. I don’t know, but I’m chuckling to myself typing this. Well to those of you who don’t know what this funny word is: Clafoutis, is a custard-like baked French dessert that is typically made by baking fresh fruit and a batter. I used grape tomatoes instead of fruit (cherries are most commonly used) and the result was awesome; light, eggy and quiche-like.

Recipe is from Vegetarian Times magazine. These clafoutis are baked in muffin tin; they are puffed up like soufflé when hot, but drop as soon as they are out of the oven. This happens in matter of minutes, I tried to take pictures of souffléd muffins, but they dropped so fast that I don’t think my pictures do justice.
