The food blog Simply Recipes is turning into one of my go-to sources for deliciousness. I made her clafouti last year, following the recipe exactly, and was surprised to find it too sweet for my taste. I resolved to make it again if I could get my hands on sour cherries this year!
Well, as you may recall, I bought a ton of sour cherries just last week! So I knew what I was going to do with 2 cups' worth: clafouti!!!! I'd never heard of this delicious dish until about a year ago, but it's basically an eggy custard poured over fruit, then baked - it reminds me of a Dutch apple pancake. In fact I just looked at a recipe to compare and they're pretty much identical.
Anyway! After lovingly pitting the cherries, put them and some slivered almonds in a buttered/floured pan:
Mix the batter and pour over the fruit:
Bake it til it's puffy (though it falls a lot as it cools):
Of course you could use regular fruit & cut the sugar in the custard to acheive the same delicious effect.
