When your friends ask you what this is, you can tell them its just a little French dessert you threw together.

Cherry Clafoutis (KLA-FOO-TEE) is a surprisingly easy to make and tasty combination of almond custard studded with a handful of dark sweet Bing cherries.

The best part is that there is no crust, just a handful of ingredients you do just throw together on a summer evening. Eat this one on the porch. Yum.


  • 1 cup pitted fresh cherries
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup Truvia or 1/2 cup Splenda granular
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour - no swaps, this wont turn out without the flour


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Butter a round ceramic pie plate or baking dish and place dish on a baking sheet.
  • Arrange the cherries in the dish.
  • Combine the eggs, milk, vanilla, almond, salt and flour in the blender, pulsing to create a batter, being careful not to over mix.
  • Allow batter to rest 15 minutes. Pour over cherries.
  • Bake 40 to 45 minutes until golden and puffed. Transfer to a rack to cool.
  • Serve warm.
