Cat's Cherry Clafoutis recipe

I have no clue what to write about.  As you can see, I haven't touched my blog in a few months!  Hmmmm....that can be a good thing as I have been super busy!  Let's see, lets talk about favorite subject....or let me post a recipe....

That's a Cherry Clafoutis....

The verb clafir in French means "to fill"or lets just say "the batter with cherries".  Some people prefer the cherries to be pitted but in my household, we leave the pits in, its more home-like and warm.  Some people sprinkle powdered sugar on top or make it with other types of fruit.

Here's Cat's Cherry Clafoutis recipe

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

4 eggs separated

2/3 cup sugar

6 T all-purpose flour

1 cup of heavy cream

1/2 tsp salt

1 1/2 lbs of fresh cherries, pitted or not, be sure to tell your guests!

1/2 tsp lemon zest

powdered sugar for dusting

can be served with ice cream

Combine egg yolks and 1/3 cup sugar;  beat with mixer until ribbon forms, about 8 minutes

add flour, vanilla and cream

beat with mixer on low until completely blended, make sure to scrape sides

in small bowl, using handheld whisk, beat egg whites and salt for about 30 seconds

add whites to batter and mix together with wooden spoon, incorporate and mix on low

preheat the baking dish for about 5 minutes

in bowl, stir cherries and 1/3 cup of sugar

remove pan from oven

pour in cherries and top with batter

bake until clafoutis is set in middle, 30-35 minutes

and voila......"Life is just a bowl of cherries..."

my guests loved it and so will you.......
