Olive Clafoutis with Feta and Thyme
Olives are life. When I go to the South of Europe I love eating fresh olives drowned in tasty olive oil and seasoned with the best herbs.
But I wanted to experiment with olives this week so I present to you my olive clafoutis made with the thyme and feta olives from Père Olive! Perfect for an apéro, cut into cubes or as an accompaniment at lunch or a picnic.
A clafoutis is like a cake but with more eggs. That way it is sturdier and thicker. The “cake” tends to bloat in the oven, but once you take it out it goes down a bit. Don’t worry, this is supposed to happen. Life can’t be perfect ;)
Here is the recipe:
What do you need?
4 tbsp of self-raising flour
1 cup of milk
80g of Emmental cheese
1 pack of Père Olive green olives with feta and thyme*
1 tbsp of olive oil
1 tsp salt
What do you need to do?
Mix together the milk, salt and flour. Then slowly beat in the eggs one by one. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix slowly.
Leave to sit for an hour or so.
Heat the oven to 200°C. Place the mixture in a cake tin that has been lined with baking paper. Place in the center of the oven for 30_35 minutes.
When you take it out, leave too cool. Cut into cubes or slices and enjoy!
* or if you don’t have these where you are, 1 cup of green olives, 1 cup of cubed feta and 1tbsp of dried thyme.
