Cherry Clafoutis Recipe
Hi Everyone! I have wanted to share a clafoutis recipe for over a years, well, years now. I didn’t before because I thought there were too many steps or it seemed indimidating from looking at a clafoutis recipe in one of my French cookbooks – not this Cherry Clafoutis Recipe!
I love and am inspired by French cooking (Eric is half French too), plus cherries are my favorite, as evidences by this recent Cherry Cobbler Recipe.
While I write this, I have the 2nd Cherry Clafoutis recipe in the oven this week. I am hooked! It’s one of the best ways to enjoy cherries (traditionally used) or your favorite stone fruit of the season.
This Cherry Clafoutis Recipe is so easy that I was able to throw it together, test a new Carrot Ginger Soup recipe (see previous) for dinner, all while Eric, Margo and our visiting French cousin Lucile are on a short hike. P.S. I also got all the dishes done AND set the table. This is the easy yet delicious-kind-of-dinner cooking that I strive for.

I know you will love this Cherry Clafoutis Recipe; I suggest serving it with Vanilla Whipped Cream.
- 1 cup whole milk
- 3 large eggs
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 2-2 1/2 cups pitted red cherries, You can substitute the same amount other fresh or frozen stone fruit
- confectioner's sugar, for dusting
- whipped cream, for serving
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
- In a large mixing bowl, using a whisk, combine the milk, eggs, sugar, vanilla and butter. The sugar should be completely dissolved.
- Add the flour and whisk until combined and there are no lumps.
- Add the pitted cherries and pour the batter into a standard pie plate or cast iron skillet.
- Bake for 35-40 minutes (40 minutes always works for me). It should be puffy, golden and the center should be set when done.
- Dust with confectioner's sugar before serving warm and/or whipped cream. Enjoy!
If you want to use another type of stone fruit, you can substitute the same amount.
