This recipe for cherry clafoutis is one of the easiest French desserts you can ever make, simply perfect for cherry season and is absolutely amazing. A custard like base and lots of cherries on top, sprinkled with a bit of powdered sugar, it is best served warm either as a dessert or even for breakfast.

Makes about 6-8 servings

20 oz (600 g) fresh sweet cherries, stemmed and pitted
2 tbsp (30 g) butter, melted
4 eggs
1 cup (240 ml) milk
3/4 cup (100g) flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup (100 g) sugar
1/2 tsp almond extract (or 3 drops of almond essence)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
For Dusting
powdered sugar

1.Preheat the oven to 350F (180C). Grease a round 10 inch (26cm) baking dish with butter. Dust with about 2 tbsp of sugar.

2. Arrange the cherries in a single layer; set aside until you prepare the batter.

3. Mix eggs with remaining sugar and salt. Stir in flour. Add milk, vanilla extract, almond extract and mix well until well blended. Add melted butter and stir to combine. The result is similar to crepes mixture.

4. Pour the mixture over the cherries.

5. Bake for about 40-45 minutes until puffed and golden brown. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving. Serve warm or chilled.

  4. Just in case someone finds this interesting: the original clafoutis recipe recommends not removing the seeds because they help retaining water.

  5. just made it and it is delicious! instead of cherries I used blueberries and blackberries cause that's what I had. I also put Chia seeds
