Cherry Clafouti

Cherry Clafouti

Serves 6

A clafouti tastes like a cross between a pancake and a custard and is easier to make than both. It can be thrown together at the last minute with readily available ingredients. Try with berries, sliced peaches, nectarines or apricots when in season.

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 pound fresh cherries, pitted and halved, or 1 pound frozen cherries, thawed and thoroughly drained
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 375°F. Whisk together sugar, flour and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk in eggs one at a time. Whisk in milk and vanilla, just until incorporated.

Arrange cherries evenly in the bottom of a buttered 9-inch pie plate or dish. Pour batter over cherries and bake until clafouti is puffed and browned, 45 to 50 minutes. Sift powdered sugar over the top and cut into 6 wedges.
