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 food....my favorite subject....or let me post a recipe....
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.......
