Notes & Options:
There are lots of ways to modify this cranberry clafouti to spice it up, down or just change it to suit your palate. You can try:
– Using walnuts instead of almonds to make it crunchier. Use walnut pieces (or chopped pine nuts even) and sprinkle them in with the cranberries before pouring the mixture into the pan.
– Use a bit less flour (1/2 – 3/4 cup) if you prefer it to be less dense.
– This recipe is sweet. If you’d prefer a more tart taste, so that the cranberries ‘shine’ more then you can cut the sugar back to 1/2 to 3/4 cup as well.
– Fresh berries are always best, but frozen ones work just as well as long as you thaw them and drain the excess cranberry juice first.
