Cherry Clafoutis Recipe

Traditionally it was made with the first sweet cherries of the season, and the cherries were left unpitted so their kernels could release their delicate almond flavor as they baked.

A Cherry Clafoutis is made by covering sweet cherries with a pancake-like batter and then baking it in a hot oven until the batter has set with nicely browned, and slightly puffed edges. The clafoutis should be served immediately, while it is still warm, with a dusting of confectioner's (powdered or icing) sugar. Today, a lot of people prefer this dish with pitted cherries, which makes the clafoutis much easier to eat.
