Cherry Clafoutis

Although it may seem like a decadent dessert, the low sugar content and eggs added to this recipe make it a great breakfast alternative! Filled with sweet cherries and oh-so simple to prepare, this cherry clafoutis from our friend Sherri from Crunchtime is sure to please the whole family morning, noon and night.

Serves 8

  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla (or almond) extract
  • 2 cup black cherries (or other fruit)

Pre-heat the oven to 400 F.

Pit the cherries – this tool is must.

Melt butter.

Butter a glass dish or cast-iron skillet 9-10″ diameter, or a dish roughly the same general size.

Beat the sugar and the eggs with a wire whisk until they turn lighter in color.

Gradually add the melted butter, beating to incorporate.

Add the flour all at once and whisk until the batter is a homogeneous mixture.

Next slowly pour in the milk a little at a time.

Add the vanilla mixing well. The batter should be very smooth and shiny.

Place the fruit in the baking dish. Pour the batter over the fruit.

Bake in the pre-heated oven, approximately 30-40 minutes , check early to avoid burning. It should be slightly browned and almost completely set in the middle.

Let sit at least 15 minutes before turning out onto a plate and serving or serve out of the baking pan. Serve warm or at room temperature.
