Cherry Clafouti

Cherry ClafoutiThis country French dessert is made with a layer of dark sweet cherries topped by a zesty, citrus-scented batter.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 (12-ounce) bag frozen dark sweet cherries, thawed and drained
3 large eggs
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon orange liquor
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1/3 cup granulated sugar, plus 6 teaspoons
Pinch of salt
1 cup skim milk
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
Powdered sugar, for dusting

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Butter six 6-ounce individual quiche dishes. Divide cherries equally over the bottom of each dish.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, orange liquor, vanilla, lemon zest, 1/3 cup sugar and salt. Slowly blend in milk.
  4. Add flour and whisk until slightly lumpy.
  5. Pour batter over cherries and place dishes in the oven. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until the tarts are golden and puffy. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of sugar over the top of each and bake 5 additional minutes.
  6. Cool dishes on wire rack for 15 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
