Fresh, Stemmed and Pitted
Whole Milk, Room Temp
You’ll need an additional 2 tbsp for dusting
Just enough for dusting!
Preheat the oven to 350 Degrees
Grease a round baking dish with butter and dust with about 2 tbsp of sugar (the dish should be as close to 10″ round as possible)
Pit the cherries and add them to the baking dish – they should cover the bottom.
Mix the eggs with the sugar and salt, whisk well.
Whisk in the flour, 1/3 at a time until thoroughly incorporated.
Add the milk, vanilla, and almond extract. Mix well until thoroughly incorporated.
Add the melted butter and mix thoroughly.
Pour the mixture over the cherries and back 40-45 minutes until it has puffed up and turned golden brown.
Dust lightly with powdered sugar and serve.
I let my Clafoutis cool enough before dusting so that the powdered sugar doesn’t melt.
This can be served warm or chilled. Typically, we have our first pieces warm and place the leftovers wrapped loosely in plastic wrap in the fridge to enjoy later!
