Clafoutis is one of the simplest French desserts and yet its elegant and delicious. Somewhere between a cake and a flan, the black cherries provide juicy bursts of fruit between the rich bites of tahitian vanilla spiked custard.

How to Make Clafoutis (pronounced klah-foo-tee)

Step-by-Step

  1. Move your oven rack to the middle position and preheat to 350 degrees F.
