Cherry Clafoutis - a classic French baked egg-and-milk custard with cherries.
– 1 lb. cherries
– 4/5 cup self raising flour
+ 20 gms – 1 cup + 1 tbsp sugar
– 2 tbsp butter
melted (+ a little to grease the pan)
– 1 cup milk
Put the self raising flour, eggs, 140 gms – 1 cup of sugar, salt, melted butter, milk and vanilla essence in a blender and blend until smooth.
Grease the pan with some melted butter, sprinkle the remaining sugar on it and add the cherries.
Pour the batter on top of the cherries.
Bake in a pre heated oven at 180°C – 355°F for 45 minutes to 1 hour (depending on your oven and on the depth of your dish). It’s ready when the batter has set and the top is golden brown.
Let the clafoutis cool down slightly and dust it with icing sugar before serving it lukewarm.
