141 – Cherry Clafoutis Recipe
- 1 pound of red cherries (or apricots, peaches, etc.)
- 4 large eggs
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- A pinch of salt
1- Butter a clafoutis pan (I am using a 9″ clay pan).
2- Preheat your oven to 360 F degrees.
3- Using a pairing knife, slice the cherries in the middle and remove their pits. Try to keep the cherries whole. Some recipes call for using cherries with pits – if you do so, please let your family and guests know before they eat the clafoutis so they do not choke.
4- Place the cherries in the clafoutis pan.
1- In a bowl, mix the eggs with sugar, vanilla extract, and salt.
2- Add the melted butter to the egg mixture and mix well.
3- Sift the flour and add it to the egg mixture. Mix well until you get a very smooth dough with no flour clumps.
4- Add the 1 cup of milk to the flour and egg mixture, and continue mixing.
5- Using a ladle, carefully add the dough to the cherries in the clafoutis pan. Do it gently to not distrub the cherries so they do not move to the top.
6- Bake the clafoutis for 40 minutes or until done, when the center is set and the clafoutis gets a golden color.
7- As soon as you remove the clafoutis from the oven, sprinkle it with sugar. Let it cool down. Serve the clafoutis warm or cold, as a dessert, breakfast, or brunch!!!
