Grape And Blueberry Flaugnarde

I created this Grape And Blueberry Flaugnarde recipe for Woolworths.

In December I was asked by Woolworths to do a blog post for their chopping board chit chat on grapes. I was in a baking mood and so I decided to use a clafoutis recipe to highlight the grapes. Clafoutis is usually made with cherries and as soon as I had one bite, I was taken right back to Brittany where we had our first taste of Far Breton. This traditional dessert is often made with grapes, so I was right on the money so to speak. I used green seedless grapes known as Prime and they are not very sweet and have a firm skin. It may have been better to cut them in half before I started baking, but either way, the taste it wonderful. You may be wondering what a flaugnarde is? I could not call this a flan so I turned to wikipedia for some help: This is a flan-like baked French dessert with fruit arranged in a buttered dish and covered with a thick flan-like batter. Similar to a clafoutis which is made with black cherries, a flaugnarde is made with apples, peaches, pears, plums, prunes or other fruits. Resembling a large pancake, the dish is dusted with confectioner’s sugar and can be served either warm or cold.

  1. That sounds delicious and I know the Breton cake that you mentioned.Delicious, and I’d love to try the grape version. By the way, your picture hasn’t published – it’s just a white box.

  2. Oh, yum! Not only a to-die-for word…I must take ‘flaugnarde’ off and use it in three sentences today – but a fantastic recipe to boot. Tandy, I always gain something great from my visits here. Thank you.

  3. I already tasted a similar recipe using raspberries & strawberries! I absolutely love flaugnardes! Yours sounds even better!

    1. Hi, I have put the pic in again (second time) so would you mind looking to see if it is there? Glad your imagination makes it look good 🙂

  4. This looks fabulous Tandy. I’ve never heard of a flaugnarde; so love learning about new recipes. It’s interesting that all the fruit remained on the top and did not sink/drop to the bottom. The presentation is beautiful.

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will only be visible once I reply)
