Cherry Clafoutis

Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 1 hr
Total Time 1 hr 15 mins
Servings 8


  • 3 cups 420 grams sweet black cherries, pitted
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 2/3 cup 130 grams granulated natural cane sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup 75 grams sifted all purpose flour
  • Confectioners' sugar for dusting (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Generously butter the bottom and sides of a 12-inch (30-cm) oval casserole.
  • Add the milk, 1/3 cup (65 grams) sugar, eggs, vanilla, salt, and flour to the bowl of a blender. Blend until smooth, about 1 minute.
  • Pour a 1/4-inch layer of batter in the prepared baking dish. Set it over a medium flame on the stove for 1 to 2 minutes, until the batter just begins to set at the bottom of the dish.
  • Spread the cherries into single layer in the pan. Pour the remaining batter over them.
  • Sprinkle the remaining sugar on top.
  • Bake for one hour, until the flan puffs up, and is deeply golden.
  • Let the clafoutis cool 10 to 15 minutes, and dust with confectioners' sugar, if desired, before serving. May also be served at room temperature.
