French Food Friday - Clafoutis Grandmere aux cerises

recipe and photo from here

Yesterday there were a lot of cherries on the market and I can not think of anything nicer to make than Clafoutis which is delicious when eaten hot or cold.

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes

Ingredients (for 8 people): -

600 g of cherries
40 g butter  +20g for greasing the dish
4 eggs 
200 ml milk 
100 g  flour
60 g  sugar 
1 sachet vanilla sugar (Note if you do not have this use a teaspoon of vanilla essence)
1 pinch of salt
Icing sugar

Preheat the oven to 210 ° C (thermostat 7).

Wash the cherries under a trickle of  water, trim  and drain them.
Remove the stones, note  the traditional recipe says leave them, so it is up to you to see if you leave them or not...

Dissolve 40 g of butter in a small heavy saucepan.

In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, salt and vanilla sugar. Whish the eggs lightly then add the milk and whisk together.

Add the melted butter and whisk again. Grease the dish, place the  cherries in the dish then pour the clafoutis mix over the top.

Put in the oven for 10 minutes at 210 ° C then turn it down to 180 ° C and bake for a further 20 minutes. Serve cold or warm, sprinkled with icing sugar.

bon appetit, leeann x
