I was doing the usual, just perusing the recipe websites and came across this on Myrecipes.com. It’s a recipe for something called Cherry Clafouti.
I have never heard of Clafouti! Have you? I am dying to try it for two reasons…. 1.) it looks and sounds delicious! 2.) I like saying clafouti! It’s really fun! Like “what are you eating there?”. “Oh, just some clafouti”.
MyRecipes also adds that the cost per serving is only $.63 cents! Can’t beat that.
- 1 (12 oz.) package frozen pitted black cherries, thawed
- 1/2 cup plus 1 Tbsp. sugar
- 3 large eggs
- 1 yolk of a large egg
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- Pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar, optional
Preheat oven to 425°F. Butter a 9-inch pie plate. Drain cherries; sprinkle with 1 Tbsp. sugar.
Whisk eggs and yolk together in a large bowl until blended. Add flour gradually, stirring constantly with a fork until incorporated. Stir in remaining 1/2 cup sugar, salt and vanilla extract. Slowly add milk, stirring, until mixture forms a thin batter.
Pour half of batter into bottom of pie pan. Bake until firm and set, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven and scatter cherries over batter. Pour remaining batter over cherries and return to oven. Cook until puffed, lightly browned and set in middle, about 25 minutes longer. Cool slightly on a wire rack. Sift confectioners’ sugar over clafouti, if desired, and serve warm.
