I'm making a pear clafoutis to bring to a dinner party tonight. I've made traditional clafoutis many times (cherry, pear, etc.) and have always put a couple of tablespoons of a spirit in the batter - kirsch for cherry, cognac or pear liqueur for pear, and so on.
Tonight, however, there will be someone at the dinner who can't have alcohol (at all,) so I'll just use vanilla. Am concerned it will be bland...anyone ever made a booze-free clafoutis and was it just as tasty? (I know many recipes don't even call for it, but I'm skeptical.)
