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.

1/4 c
heavy cream
1/4 c

3Add 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.
