This will make an excellent desert for the holidays. Give them cranberries in a whole new way. I don’t know how anyone can’t love this dish. I was going make a Martha Stewart Cherry Clafouti, but the grocery store was out of cherries. I also needed cherry liquor, but the liquor store was closed. I did have cranberries and Grand Marnier which sounded really good. I was right on the money. It’s fantastic, probably better than the cherry version. The cranberries add a nice tartness to the dish. I hope you like it.

  1. Cranberries are far too tart for this type of dessert. If I make this again I'll use a sweeter berry; blueberries perhaps or possibly raspberries. I think a smaller baking dish would help too. The custard layer is rather scanty when made is such a large pan.
  2. I don'the generally rate recipes because I change to many things to give an accurate review. This time I'm reviewing for just that reason. Previous reviewers complained that the berries were to tart, I put the berries, liquor and sugar in a saucepan and let them cook on low about 15 minutes. The sugar had - Read more ...
  3. Made this elegant dessert for our New Years Eve dinner. I used washed raw sugar because that is what we had on hand. I was pretty generous with butter and sugar in the pan before adding the cranberries. There is a brown butter/caramel characteristic to the flavor. Not sure if that is due to the - Read more ...
  4. I made this for Thanksgiving dinner. The custard turned out ok but the cranberries were too tart. I doubt if I'll make it again.
  5. Made this for Thanksgiving. It disappeared rapidly. Will make it again. Delicious. Loved the sweet-tart combination.
  6. I had high hopes for this beautiful looking dessert. wanted to do a test run before Thanksgiving. The custuard is yummy (I even used 1/2 & 1/2 but will use heavy cream when I make it again).

  7. Fantastic!
