Cherry Almond Clafouti

I posted the picture of my clafouti and now, as promised, here is the recipe. Clafouti is a sort of pancake, sort of quiche. Its a wonderful dish that is the perfect dessert for fresh fruit. I used cherries in this one but you can use all sorts of fruits- peaches, plums, blueberries, raspberries….. Most people enjoy it as a dessert but it is also nice with that morning cup of coffee.


Cherry Almond Clafouti

2 c. pitted cherries

1/3 c. sliced almonds

3 eggs

1 c. sugar

1/2 c. flour

2 t. vanilla extract

1 t. almond extract

pinch of salt

1 c. half and half

powdered sugar, optional

Grease and flour a 9×9-inch baking dish. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place cherries and almonds in the prepared pan. In blender combine eggs, sugar, flour, flavorings and salt.* Blend until smooth. Add half and half and blend again until smooth. Pour batter over the cherries and almonds. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until clafouti is browned around edges and puffed up. Allow to cool and dust with powdered sugar, if you like. Serves 6.

* You can whisk the ingredients together by hand, if you prefer.
