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.
  2. Generously butter an 7" tart dish and then arrange the pitted cherries in an evenly spaced fashion.
  3. Add the eggs, cream, milk, sugar and flour to a blender or small food processor and then scrape the vanilla beans into it as well. Blend until smooth and free of lumps.
  4. Slowly pour the mixture over the cherries, being careful not to clump the cherries together.
