A clafoutis is a traditional French dessert in which fresh fruit – usually cherries – are baked in a batter. It is rather like a fruit flan without the pastry. In France many people have cherry trees in their back yard – we had several at our home – and the fruit is used in desserts like this one.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
700g cherries, stoned
40g plain flour, sifted
60g caster sugar
A pinch salt
4 eggs
600ml full-cream milk
2 egg yolks
2 tablespoons cognac or kirsch
icing sugar, for dusting

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Lightly butter a 28 cm x 3 cm deep porcelain flan dish. Arrange the cherries over the base.
  2. Combine the sift ed flour, sugar, salt and 2 of the eggs in a bowl and mix together well. Add a little milk and mix well. Mix in the 2 remaining whole eggs and the egg yolks. Lastly, mix in the remaining milk.
  3. Carefully strain the mixture into the flan dish over the cherries. Drizzle the Cognac evenly over the top. Carefully place in the oven and bake for about 45 minutes.
  4. Remove from the oven and dust with icing sugar before serving. Take care as it is very hot.
