Some rainy Sunday when you have time to relax and enjoy life, it’s well worth indulging in this classic French dessert. It’s one of the easiest treats you can make, especially if you find yourself with extra cherries or berries on hand.
- 2 teaspoons plus 1/3 cup sugar, divided
- 3/4 pound cherries, pitted (about 2 cups)
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1- 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1- 1/4 cups milk
- 1 tablespoon confectioners’ sugar
- Nonstick cooking spray
- Measuring spoons
- Measuring cups
- Cherry pitter
- 10-inch pie plate or Tart/Quiche baking dish
- Heat oven to 375°. Coat baking dish with cooking spray and sprinkle with 2 teaspoons sugar. Arrange cherries in bottom of plate.
- Place egg, remaining 1/3 cup sugar, flour, vanilla and milk in a blender; blend until smooth. Pour over cherries.
- Bake for 35 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack until warm. Sift confectioners’ sugar over top before serving.
Note that the texture of clafoutis is like a sturdy custard, so if it feels a little rubbery, that’s just how it’s supposed to be.
While your home fills up with the tasty aromas of an earlier time, you can indulgently curl up with a good book. May I suggest Traveler’s Zone?
Chris Pavesic continues the amazing story of Cami Malifux with Book 2 of the Revelation Chronicles.
Escape from a world of darkness into a magical realm of limitless adventure.
In Starter Zone Cami kept herself and her younger sister Alby alive in a post-apocalyptic world, facing starvation, violence, and death on a daily basis. Caught by the military and forcefully inscribed, Cami manages to scam the system and they enter the Realms, a Virtual Reality world, as privileged Players rather than slaves. They experience a world of safety, plenty, and magical adventure.
In the Traveler’s Zone magic, combat, gear scores, quests, and dungeons are all puzzles to be solved as Cami continues her epic quest to navigate the Realms and build a better life for her family. But an intrusion from her old life threatens everything she has gained and imperils the entire virtual world.
Time to play the game.
