How to Make CHERRY CLAFOUTI
- Preheat an oven to 350F. Butter a 9-inch by 9-inch square baking dish or a 9-inch deep-dish pie round with the softened butter.
- In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, cream, flour, eggs, sugar, vanilla and almond extracts, and salt until it forms a smooth, thin batter. Spread 3/4 cup of the batter onto the bottom of the prepared baking dish and bake it for 2-4 minutes. Watch the batter closely and remove it before it cooks through completely. It should just start to thicken and set when it is removed from the oven.
- Transfer the dish to a heatproof surface and arrange the cherries over the hot batter. Pour the remaining batter over the cherries and bake for 35-40 minutes, until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
- Sprinkle the confectioners’ sugar over the finished clafouti and serve it warm. This cherry clafouti recipe makes 8 servings.
