Quick and easy to make, this Cherry Clafoutis makes a gorgeous summer brunch or dessert. Best eaten outside with a mug of coffee or a drizzle of cream.
- 1 teaspoon butter
- 350 g cherries (preferably pitted)
- 100 g (½ cup) caster (superfine) sugar + 2 tablespoons
- 300 ml (1¼ cup) milk
- 60 g (½ cup) plain (all-purpose) flour
- 3 eggs
- 1½ teaspoons vanilla
- Pinch salt
- 1 tablespoon kirsch (optional but delicious)
Pre-heat the oven to 180°C (350°F)
Using the butter, grease an oven dish in which the cherries fully cover the base in a single layer. Sprinkle the sugar over the butter, tipping the dish so that the butter is well coated. Place the cherries into the dish.
Place the remaining ingredients into a blender (or use a bowl and stick blender or whisk) and whizz the ingredients until just combined. Pour the batter over the cherries.
Put the clafoutis into the pre-heated oven and bake for 40 minutes until golden but still wobbly in the centre.
Dust with icing sugar to serve if you wish.
