G'day dear friends! Welcome to this week's Say G'day Saturday Linky party!

For this weekend's Say G'day Party, I am sharing a delicious recipe for

Cherry Clafoutis.

Cherry Clafoutis
When Maddy and I decided that we were going to make Cherry Clafoutis (pronounced kla-foo-TEE) for a dinner party we figured we'd google the recipe and easily find one. How wrong we were! There are dozens of different clafoutis recipes out there in cyberspace! Each recipe is unique and they all looked equally delicious. I think our version of the recipe was just as delicious as all the other ones out there!

The clafoutis comes from the Limousin region of France. Traditionally, black cherries are used in the recipe but there are numerous variations using other fruits including red cherries, plums, prunes, apples, cranberries or blackberries.When other kinds of fruit are used instead of cherries, the dish is properly called a flaugnarde.

The recipe we used is not from one source but it is an amalgamation of a few. Traditional clafoutis recipes suggest using cherries with their pits still in to lend some flavour to the dish. As it is not cherry season here we used canned cherries and we think the flavour was still divine! Our guests thought it was delicious too!

The end product was quite incredible because it had just the right texture between custard and cake. If you want to make a dessert that has a certain je ne sais quoi with very little effort then you must try cherry clafoutis!

Cherry Clafoutis.
This delicious Cherry Clafoutis Recipe is French in origin. Black cherries are used in the recipe but other fruits such as plums, prunes or blackberries can be used.
Ingredients
  • 2 cups Fresh sweet cherries, pitted or one can of pitted cherries
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup Flour (all purpose)
  • 1 cup Milk (Full fat is best)
  • 1/2 tsp. Almond extract
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Vanilla extract
  • Powdered sugar for dusting
Instructions
Pre-heat the oven to 190 C or 380 F. Beat the sugar and the eggs until they lighten in colour. Gradually add the butter, beating to incorporate. Add the flour all and whisk until combined. Slowly pour in the milk a little at a time then add the vanilla and almond extract. The batter should be smooth and glossy. Place the fruit in a buttered 10 inch pie plate that has been sprinkled with 1 tablespoon of sugar over the bottom. It also looks very rustic when served in a skillet that is oven proof. Pour the batter over the fruit. Bake in the pre-heated oven for approximately 30-40 minutes until slightly browned and almost completely set in the middle. Let sit at least 15 minutes before serving. The clafoutis will puff up quite a bit while cooking and will then deflate while cooling-don't be alarmed when this happens! When it has cooled down a little dust with powdered sugar and serve with cream, ice cream, custard, creme fraiche...whatever you like.It is delicious warm or at room temperature. It is also delicious served cold the next day...yum!

  5. This looks awesome! I've never heard of Clafoutis...but I love custard. I'm glad you mentioned using canned cherries since they're very expensive to get here fresh. Can you make this with other berries? like blueberries?
    Thanks for hosting the party!

  6. I have a lot of blueberries to use up in my freezer. This may just be the key.
    I think leaving the pits in the cherries would ruin the dish. Yuck. Imagine your guests or family biting down on a hard pit then having to swizzle it around in their mouths so they could delicately spit it into their spoon and put it .... where?
