Cherry Clafoutis

Whilst out doing my weekly grocery shopping, I was smacked with a sudden craving for some juicy, fresh soft fruits. Though none of these types of fruits are in season at the moment, my prying eyes found a few punnets of cherries sitting pretty on the shelves. They came all the way from somewhere in South America. Carbon footprint aside (maths was never my strong suit!) I took one home and was suitably happy. That was until I had a taste - the cherries were pretty much without taste.

Cherry Clafoutis

250g cherries, pitted
4 tbsp flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
3/4 cup cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 eggs


Preheat oven to 180C
Grease a 1.5 litre flan dish with butter, then arrange the cherries in the dish

 Mix the flour and sugar in a bowl, add milk, cream and vanilla and whisk together
Add the eggs and whisk until smooth
Pour over the cherries and bake for 30 minutes or until puffed and golden

  You may serve it with a lashing of cream or creme fraiche


  1. I love this, seems simple enough! Will try to make it nanti. What other fruits can I use aside from cherries? Hope you're well!

      You may use other soft fruits such as blackberries, blueberries and raspberries
