I love cherry season. I have such great memories as a kid going cherry picking. My brother and I would sit in the trees and just eat until we couldn’t possibly be any stickier. Of course it was always hot which seemed to just compound the stickiness factor. However we never seemed to care. My friend’s Loran and Mike dropped a giant bowl of cherries off the other day picked fresh from Mike’s father’s tree. I couldn’t resist using them for something good. The first thing that came to mind was a Mixed-Berry and Cherry Clafoutis. When topped with a sweet whipped cream, it’s perfect since the clafoutis itself is not overwhelmingly sweet. A traditional French clafoutis often leaves the cherry pits in the fruit but I prefer them out. You won’t believe how easy this is to make. Let’s make it together…I promise simplicity. Here’s the ingredients you will need: Mixed berries, cherries, whole milk, superfine sugar, vanilla extract, eggs, salt, white flour and powdered sugar.
