When my good friends over at Said She Said He challenged me to make something delicious using Olives a few weeks back, I was immediately excited! Olives aren’t usually on my list of ingredients to bake with, but the idea of using them in a sweet recipe was intriguing.

During my research, I came across this unusual recipe and knew I had to give it a shot. What comes to mind when you think of Clafoutis? Cherries, perhaps? Or maybe stone fruit, like peaches or apricots? Traditionally, Clafoutis is a French dessert baked with whole black cherries – pits and all. Using a traditionally savory ingredient, such as Olives, in a normally sweet pastry sounded slightly absurd, but I thought it had the potential to be delicious.

Turns out it’s just that – delish! The poaching process takes a lot of the briney/salty elements from the Olives and replaces it with a slight sweetness that’s really interesting. Seriously, try it for yourself, your mind might just get blown a little!

P.S.: I decided to bake individual mini Clafoutis, but this recipe can also be baked in a bigger dish & served family style – what a perfect option for a weekend brunch, dontcha think?!
